I have a post all typed up and ready to go to link up with Myya today, but so far, she hasn't set it up, so here's a little somethin' to help catch you up on my week last week...
Remember when I told you that I had an appointment of NASA-esque proportions? Well, I think I may have built up your hopes for it's excitement by saying that. You see, I simply had an appointment that cleared me for takeoff. Takeoff from the platform of a roller coaster, that is!
Ya'll remember that I'm a freak of nature right? If not, you can read all about it by clicking here or here. Well, because I am so full of awesomeness, I get to go see my cardiologist every 6 months. Really, guys, don't let the green eyed monster take over, some people are just blessed...deal with it!
So, Tuesday was my latest appointment. I always underestimate how long my echocardiograms are going to take, so that took longer than I anticipated (of course) and then I saw my doctor.
By the way, if you are ever in the DFW area, and need a cardiologist, you can't go wrong with the clinical heart center of UTSouthwestern. Them's my peeps!
I had prepared a list of questions (by list, I mean 1) to ask, that I felt was a very important one. Have you ever done that? Come up with a question, think you know the answer, and you figure it's this big life and death kind of deal, to find out that it's actually not a big deal at all?
My question? Would I be able to ride roller coasters.
Why is this question so important?
Well, because as I mentioned before, we recently purchased season passes to 6 flags over Texas. The plan was, that every once in a while, we would go without the kids, and ride all the "big" rides. I don't know if you've noticed, but there are always big honkin' signs at the start of the line that say not to ride if you have a heart condition. Previously, I always ignored those signs. After all, I don't have heart DISEASE, so I should be good. Well, the last time I rode a roller coaster was shortly after Bubble was born. While I was pregnant with Boo, I started having severe arrythmias, that put me on "old man heart pills" as I lovingly refer to them. So, I figured that riding roller coasters would be out of the question for me now.
My doctor's response when I posed the question?
"Are you gonna throw up?"
"Then I don't see any reason why you shouldn't ride them, just make sure to take your meds before you go."
So, there you go. I made a big deal out of nothing.
I'm hoping I can convince Lady and her husband to go with us one day, or another couple, so I'm not the only one screaming like a girl.
