Continuing Updates

Hi all, so here we are at the end of June already.

Scheduling multiple health appointments

I received a call from the surgeon's office and I have an appointment for August 5th, so that is moving ahead faster than expected.

In the meantime, I had a colonoscopy scheduled for July 23 but received a call from this Dr's office that the hospital changed my date for this procedure to June 21st. The day after, on the 22nd my family Dr's receptionist to set up a phone visit with the Dr.for the 23rd.

Determining heart issues with RA

Well, apparently my heart rate dropped to 25 during the colonoscopy procedure.

Now, I currently am wearing a halter monitor till July 1st when I take it off and back to the hospital. That is the start of trying to figure out what is going on with my heart.

I had a heart echo on the first of June regarding lightheadedness episodes I have. As expected all was excellent with the flow. But, considering this new problem there will be more tests to come.

Blessings to all,
