Welcome to the second edition for today of Trucker Tuesday. I’m sure some of you would like to know what happened after last weeks Trucker Tuesday. I am here to share that now.
I did not have a heart attack and after my stress test last Wednesday, I found out that I do not have any blockages in my heart. I am thankful for that. Also, on that day, I had the gallbladder ultra-sound done. It also came back negative. I’m pretty sure it all came down to stress. I know I’m gonna have to not let so much bother me, but I’ll save that for another time.
In other News
The night after my visit to the hospital I woke up with alot of pain in my lower left arm. I have had gout before and thought that was what it was so I started taking my medicine for it. It normally only takes two or three pills to put it to rest but after five it was still hurting. I lived with it until the doctor would see me last Friday and could do the blood work. I was ready to cut it off Thursday night and Friday morning. I couldn’t even write my name or button my pants.
I decided to just have all of my blood work done on this visit instead of waiting to have to take off another day right after Christmas. After all was said and done, the doctor was satisfied with my numbers and especially my A1C being 5.7. I was sure that had drifted back up.
Today I heard that the cause of all my pain in my hand and arm was gout. She did prescribe me some more medicine for it but I can’t start taking it until I get home this weekend. My hand and arm are much better today.
