Time For New Hospital Tests

It has been a wonderful birthday "week" topped off with four inches of snow last night. But now I face a new set of hospital tests on Tuesday morning.

Have to be in Lexington at 8:30 a.m. for a cat scan, echo, and walking test. This will determine for sure if I have pulmonary hypertension. I'm still having problems with shortness of breath, not being able to walk for long distances, badly clubbing nails (curving over), etc. so if the test doesn't show this diagnosis, he said there is definitely something wrong with my lungs. If it is PH, I go for a heart cath on the right side and medications will be added to the already mound of meds I take.

And so the journey begins. Tests, diagnosis, treatment. Not something I'm looking forward to for sure.
