My tests are all back.

I just saw my doctor 6 days ago and everything looked wonderful for my heart. Come to find out this test that came back so odd, is from my fibromyalgia. It's getting worse all the time. But I refuse to be on any pain meds or muscle relaxers. Too habit forming. Been there, done that, have the tee shirt. So this heart doctors idea is this. Start out with five minutes on the exercise bike and each day add one more minute. Keep a journal of the time, the date, the milage and the tension you're using. Then in eight weeks, he'll look over the journal and tell me if I'm doing better or not. So today was day 7. I'm now at two miles in 11 minutes, which doesn't sound that good to anyone that's normal, but to me who has been having a hard time doing five minutes on the bike, it's great news. Tomorrow will be day 12. Every day it's something to look forward to. It's going to take a while to get my endurance up, but I'm trying my hardest. My goal is to not be as tired while walking with Rodney and Sam. I have to stay behind a lot because I can't keep up. I used to be the one that was far ahead of everyone. I'm thinking at the end of the eight weeks, I might have some stamina. This would be so good. I would love it. I'm tired of being tired after cleaning the bathroom and not being able to do anything else. KNow what I mean? Sam has just started doing her own laundry, so that was a nice change for me. Less work, more time to do other things that need to be done. Everyone kept telling me that 12 was old enough, so I finally listened. This is her first week. So far, so good. *grin* I'm sorry I've been so out of commission. I have missed everyone terribly. Just checking in and letting you all know that I'm still alive. And thankfully those heart tests all came out well. It's because I studied so hard for them. :) Have a good Wednesday.

Hugs, Patt
