Greetings friends, fellow pirates, and members of dblogville.
Life has been hectic as of late and the medical tests continue. I'm seriously looking forward to closing the book on this chapter (that being every Dr. I've come in contact with in the last two weeks favorite medical oddity. I'm OVER IT) in Kelly's Big Book of Life and move forward.
Tomorrow it's back to the eye specialist for a follow up and on Wednesday I will be an active participant in a video/photoshoot of my aortic valves & company. This procedure is called a TEE or Trans Esophageal Echocardiogram.
Basically, they put a camera down my throat and esophagus and take video & stills of my heart chamber.
LOVELY - I know. But hopefully, it will show that all is good in that area.
Me being a bit of a camera whore - I'm sure they'll get some good shots.
I'll admit-I'm big time nervous about what they'll find, but this needs to be done in order to move on, so I agreed to it.
"Diabetically" speaking, blood sugars have been spot on.
Speaking of blood sugars,I have a question for you guys:
This test requires that I fast and not eat before they shove said camera down my throat. Any insulin pumpers out there who can offer advice regarding fasting/basal rates for same day medical procedures?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated by yours truly and I'd be forever in your debt.
And of course,sharing your advice would definitely put you one notch up on Santa's "Good" list ;)
