Just wanted to update you all!

I had the scare of my life that week. Have had high blood pressure most of my adult life and never really took it seriously. I try and take my meds daily and watch the numbers every so often. About a week ago i went upstairs like a i do a million times a day and when i got to the top i was so out of breath i could barely breath. I assumed it was something but not too worried. Called my cardiologist on Monday to make an appointment to get checked out and renew my prescriptions. Went in for my app and the next thing i was sent to the ER.
They did the normal EKG which i am used to but this time there was a problem.
I could not believe i am having problems and that being heart related. I was admitted to the hospital and monitored for the next 24 hours every 3 hours drawing blood, blood pressure and EKG. This has scared me half to death. We always talk about tomorrow it not promised but a person really is just saying it. This was a true eye opener for me. Enjoy today one never knows. Needless to say i am fine or at least i think for now. So far nothing has showed an actual heartache. I will be going for a stress test this week and just hoping that is fine. Thanks for listening just wanted to put it out there since i feel like all my bird friends are like family to me. Enjoy your day and i mean it.
