Wired

Oh, I'm wired all right!  Literally.  This morning I had to go get a 24 hour heart monitor at the hospital.   Nothing too serious so don't panic.  Just a racing heart which I am sure is part of the other "list" of thyroid related symptoms that my doctor seems to be in denial over.   Arrrgh (insert frustrated face here)
So I have 7 or 8 pads taped to my chest with corresponding wires attached to a little device which is stuffed down my pants, bulging quite unflatteringly at my hip.   Sounds great, doesn't it?  Sexy, I know.
 
 
The little dark grey strap holding the  little computer thingy is under my shirt and over my arm.  Comfy??  NO   And the tape holding the little pads is itchy.   And I have to keep a diary of every thing I do all day.  You know, when you see it all down on paper you realize just how boring your life is....... So 4 hours down - 20 more to go. 

This morning one of the stupid wires came un-tucked and was hanging a bit below my sweater.  In order to make this experience just a little more entertaining, I told someone I was working undercover for the police and I was wearing a wire!  Lol  

The whole over-45 ageing thing is really not all that it's cracked up to be.  On the bright side, the mammogram report came in today and all is good for another year.    And I delivered our tax stuff to the accountant today at noon.  Yeah!

  9. Good evening Kim, Honestly, what we as women have to endure. Did you know one of the symptoms of menopause is a racing heart? I looked in a 10X mirror this morning, and realized I have a few chin hairs!!! Aging is not for the faint of heart...Thinking of you, Julie.

  10. Hope the tests turn out okay. DH had to wear one, when he can me home from work one of the wires was hanging out of the fly of his pants. He was so embarrassed.

  14. I have done that a time or three. Beware when the little sticky thingies have to come off! Maybe they aren't as sticky as they used to be. Hope they find all is well. Be thinking about you!

  16. Wishing you well, Kim. I've worn one of the heart monitors in the past for a brief period, and my husband recently wore one for an entire month. Looks like your doctor would take a thyroid test.

  18. take care!!! Does your thyroid test come back normal? Because that can make your heart race. I sure hope they figure it out soon for you.
