Being Admitted to the Hospital on Monday.
Well, here I am again, still with my "new" nephrologist. I called them yesterday to tell them that I would not go to that other doctor that he wanted to refer me to. Today his nurse called me at home and said that since I don't want to go to the other doctor, my nephrologist that I am currently with now wants to admit me to the cardiac unit of our hospital to try out some more agressive meds and do some more tests while I am on the monitor around the clock. I may have to have another angiogram of my kidneys and a heart cath since it has been a few years since I've had that done and since my pressure has been up so high for such a long time (1 and 1/2 years) with no coming down at all, something might show up in the tests that did not before.
Actually, he wanted to admit me today (Thursday), but I said not until Monday because I promised my neice that I would go to her spring Musical at school and that is tomorrow night and that I won't miss it and besides, I have to make arrangements for my son to stop by as often as he can between college and work, to let the dogs outside, feed them and the cats, give everyone their medications and clean the litter box everyday. Plus he needs to feed my fish. Can you tell that I am an animal lover??? I also am only halfway done of planting my flower bulbs that have to get planted before I go into the hospital or I will lay up there, worrying about my flower beds being empty with about $50 worth of bulbs that have to be planted! So, I promised that I would go in the hospital on Monday with no problem!
So, if you don't see me on this board for a few days (or several days like it always turns into) you'll know where I am at! Too bad that I don't have a laptop to take with me so I could still post messages. I am going to go into "computer withdrawal"!!!LOL!!!
As soon as I get back home I will post on here filling you all in on what all happened. Wish me luck ...and a few prayers sent my way wouldn't hurt either!!!
Still hanging in there, Pat
