There's a little bit of medical folderol in store for me today: I'll be getting an echocardiogram later today. Screamin' early today, so perhaps I won't miss too much work -- I'd better not, since my out-of-pocket for this procedure will be a bit north of $1000, or about a replaced left-rear side light and really serious tuneup on the old RX300 Urban Assault Personnel Carrier. Guess what's not happening? Yeah.
Minimal information from my doctor, so I don't know if this will be basic imaging, or if I'll get to walk on a treadmill or whatever to push my pulse up to 167 or whatever heathen level they want for a stress test.
Worried? Me? --Darned right.
On the good-news front, the hospital got my Mom stabilized, happy and feeling good, and sent her back home yesterday afternoon.
