KR Day Minus 11

March 17, 2011

“Nancy, have you ever had a heart attack?”

After a couple of days without focusing on the upcoming knee replacement today brought a new concern. My surgeon called with news that the Monday EKG shows heart damage similar to a past heart attack. Although I’ve known of a heart murmur since I was five years old I’m unaware of any infraction. The surgeon said he would talk with my primary physician before my appointment for the medical clearance tomorrow.

My stamina hasn’t been up to par the last few months but I’ve attributed that to the consistent knee pain and the extra effort required for mobility. Climbing a flight of stairs has been no fun at all.

Hopefully, when compared to my previous EKGs this one isn’t that different or there’s a simple explanation such as misplaced leads. Should be an interesting Dr. A appointment tomorrow. I have complete faith that he’ll take the proper precautions before approving the surgery. Let there be no misunderstanding, I want nothing to interfere the the schedule date and time. I’m ready to get this completed.
