Wednesday Update

I hope that you all are having a great week. The weather around here has been quite yucky, but that is to be expected with all the spring showers. I am hoping to be done with doctors very soon!!! The latest test was the tilt table test. It was not fun and I did pass out after they gave me nitroglycerin. The tech along with the Dr. told me that I am classic neurocardiogenic syncope. Basically when you are "normal" your brain will send neuro transmittors to your heart telling it to pump blood here and there so that you don't get dizzy. Well my brain doesn't fire neuro transmittors like it should. Basically the blood pools in my legs and causes me to get dizzy, my heart to beat iradically sp?, and my breathing to escalate. I am going to the endocrinologist tomorrow as before I can be put on any meds my Calcium and Vitamin D levels need to be taken care of. After that I will see a cardiologist and hopefully I will be rid of doctors for awhile. This has been a long road, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Please continue to pray that they won't find any other issues. I am waiting to hear if I have Addison's Disease and should know by the end of this week. Sorry to have been such a slacker in the blog dept., but this wears me out and I haven't been able to get very much accomplished around here. But as the saying goes it could always be so much worse. I am thankful to have so many of you praying for me. The Lord has so richly blessed me!!! The kids are great and we had an amazing Easter with family. I have tons of pictures that I hope to download today or tomorrow. The greatest thing was Kaleb being able to tell me why we celebrate Easter. Children are so amazing and there childlike faith is what we should all strive for. Have a blessed Wednesday, and get out there and celebrate our risen Saviour!!!
