Today I'm Tired

In February or March hubbs went to have a stress test b/c he'd been feeling weird and heart problems run in his family. We JUST got the results back yesterday. The reason for the delay is such a long story, but in the end the doctors were negligent/lazy and I'm totally pissed. Anyway, he has "slightly abnormal flow" when he's exercising. He also got back blood results and his LDL is 121--21 over optimal. His testosterone is back down--303. Not good. We're eating better than we ever have and he's consistently working out. I don't understand.

I'm just sick. I simply can't take all this at our age. Maybe I'm overacting and lots of people have these issues and infertility to deal with. Whatever. It still sucks. I made some cookies and drank a bottle of three-buck-Chuck. I gotta look for a cardiologist. Hopefully a good one. My Thanks to Rebecca from Which Way to Baby? for the advice. Her husband just found out he has a heart condition.

Keep your head down and plow through. That's what I'm hearing in my head tonight.

I'm glad he got checked out, but sorry for the outcome. It's just not fair to have to deal with all of this -- especially after you guys have worked so hard on modifying your eating habits. I'm thinking of you...

It isn't fair. But, hopefully, you got ahead of what could be a tragedy. I will say a prayer for you and your husband.

Sorry to hear that even with all the healthy living, that things are still not looking better. Hang in there.

Bah...I'm really glad you guys caught it early though. Lots of time to get everything under control.

If you want the name of a great cardiologist in Rockville, let me know. A little far for you, but she's amazing.

Have a greatr weekend, and enjoy the 3$ chuck.

Sucks to make all these life changes and still get bad news. I'm sorry. I know it doesn't help much right now but it is good that he was proactive and caught this early. Hoping you get some good answers from the cardiologist and can move forward.

It just all seems too much at times, doesn't it?

It isn't fair to have another issue to have to deal with. I hope you manage to find a doctor who will manage this condition and allow you both some peace.

That last comment really ticked me off!

Bless your heart. I'm sorry you are having such a tough time right now. I hope you get some peace of mind by going to see a specialist. I'll pray for you and hubbs!

Thinking of you and your husband. Hope things get better real soon. Holding an IF card does SUCK big time. Sometimes it seems to much to bear, but we do it don't we? LOL at three-buck-chuck. (yes i had to click through...)

Anon--Adoption is a definite option for us. However, the process of adoption is one I'm not at all looking forward to. Finding an agency, the paperwork, the money...the paperwork. I looked into it not that long ago. In all honesty, it seems too overwhelming for me to process right now. I know I have at least one cyber-friend who has offered to answer any questions I have regarding adoption. So yes, we have considered it. We haven't decided what's next. Unfortunately.

The unpredictability of it all has taught me to take it one day at a time. Wishing you strength...
