Saw my PCP today. While in Rehab my heart rate shot up to 156 and no one knows why ALSO my platelet count went extremely high (950,000). So today Dr. did an echogram and it showed fluid around my heart that they think is blood. They kept asking me is I got out of breath. Of course I do - I am 67 years old, out of shape and having to do a lot of walking.
While I have had a small leak we, or rather he, can't figure where this extra came from. So I get to see the cardiologist next week when he comes to town.
Don't know what effect this will have on my clinic PT that I start tomorrow, but I will tell them about the visit and let him decide.
Anyway, keep up the good thoughts. I expect it to be a whole lot of not too much and we can clear it up with drugs, you never know.
I TOOK A TUB BATH TONIGHT. and finally I truly feel clean. Just sitting on the shower stool never made me feel truly clean since I couldn't soak. It also helped the leg spasms for a few minutes.
