Echocardiogram and Chest X-Ray

Today I went to have my Echocardiogram and chest x-ray.  I was there for over an hour.  My doctor did call this afternoon and everything looks normal and I am so happy!  My doctor called last week about the thyroid and ordered some medicine for my thyroid and my vitamin D was low too, so a prescription for that.  Our prescription insurance does not pay unless it comes from this certain pharmacy in St. Louis, so I am still waiting on my medicine to get to me through the mail, but it should be here this week.  I hope it makes me feel less tired.  My blood pressure seems to be running good when I take it at home.  I feel a lot of anxiety when I am at the doctor, but I am not sure if that is why it runs high.
I kind of lost my momentum last week with my cleaning, but I did get my dresser cleaned today.  I have two more drawers to go through, but I decided to stop.  I got the top cleaned and organized.  I also got our bar cleaned off.  The bar is a catch-all at our house.  Those are the kinds of things I am wanting to clean.  My house is always "picked up", but the deep cleaning....that is what I am working on.  I might tackle the kitchen table tomorrow, but that will be all.  It is a catch-all too.
Karl has been working nights, so I have been getting a lot done when he is gone in the evening.  The privacy fence is looking really nice.  He is taking a break from that too.  The next section will be a bear for him, he will have to remove a tree and weeds/bushes and vines from the neighbor's property.  It is not a big area, so that is good.
I am loving my summer break.  I know it is full of doctoring and cleaning, but I feel so good that I am getting it taken care of.  I needed to go to the doctor years ago, but I have been taking care of my parents.  This summer is about me, getting me on track and cleaning house.  I am doing fun things too.
I hope you are all doing really good!


  1. I am happy to hear you are getting your health in hand. It feels good to take care of yourself especially when you've been caring for others for a while.
    I feels good to get the house in order also I think. Its a big accomplishment when it all comes together.
    Have a great day !

  2. Hi Lori, I too am glad you are getting your health taken care of. Don't overwork yourself getting the house in order my friend. Make sure you catch up on needed rest too. The Yankees are doing great this year. All their young talent is definitely paying off. I can't go to the games and only able to watch on MLB-TV which I pay for. Your Cardinals are only 3-1/2 games out of 1st place. They'll catch up. They have a great manager. Have a day of blessings dear friend.

  3. Hi Lori, happy to hear the reports came back good. The thyroid medicine should help you feeling more energetic when you start taking it. It is good that you are taking care of yourself now!

    I have slowly gotten my cleaning routine together, and I am happy how it comes together and keeping the house neat and organized and clean! I went thru purging stuff at first. What I didn't touch, use, or wear in a year, I donated. It felt so good, and I still don't miss anything.

  4. Hi Lori, I think it is good that you are getting things checked out. I can understand the blood pressure going up at a doctor appointment. I just had all my test too. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs
