More medical crud

No news is ever good news, it seems. Could be worse.

According to the Thallium stress test result I have something going on with the left ventricle. This may or may not be the same thing as what my uncle George has. He required a replacement valve, but his was pretty far along the line when he was diagnosed. My grandmother told me it was a congenital irregularity but honestly, I won't know for sure what I've got until I see a cardiologist. My results were very vague.

This is just an extra special addition to an extra special week, isn't it?

Between you and my cousin, sheesh. He got the results of his latest round of tests, this time using a cardiologist who didn't blow him off. Turns out he's got a weird mitral(?) valve, it's more or less backwards. It's something he'll have to watch by having an ultrasound every year or so until it becomes enough of a problem to need replacing.

Keep at them until you get your answers.
