Hi all,

I haven't been feeling well over the last couple of days. Not sure what the problem is but after my Bypass 2 years ago I'm a little concerned about my Cardiac Symptoms- a little bit of Chest Pain, but more of a Shortness of breath or Air Hunger- like I can't get my lungs full, a little nausea, and absolutely NO energy whatsover.

I went to Health Dept. yesterday and picked up the meds I have to take due to my Tuberculosis exposure and positive PPD at work. So I start the pills today for 6 months. I'm not infectious and chest x-ray is perfectly normal- so this is just routine prophylaxis. And I haven't worn a condom well--Ever LOL!

I'm going to get checked at work tomorrow and see if I need to go back to my Cardiologist.
I'm not really scared but I am a little concerned. You know a Little Knowledge can be a bad thing sometimes. I don't want to go because I'm a little fearful this time around about what they may find- yet I have to go because the alternative is Permanent!


For those of you who pray- in whatever manner- I would appreciate them very much.

I'll keep ya posted,

Poopy in SC,



  1. You got it! I'm praying.

    Please update.

  2. Keep us posted bud, hope it's nothing serious.

  3. Get better John. Hope everything is ok.

    We wuffs you.

  4. Good luck! I hope everything turns out okay...could just be stress. Let's hope that's all it is.

    Keep us're in my thoughts.

  5. Speaking of condoms and heart problems....

    A doctor was having an affair with his nurse. Shortly afterward, she told him that she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to know, he gave the nurse a sum of money and asked her to go to Italy and have the baby there.

    "But how will I let you know the baby is born?" she asked.

    He replied, "Just send me a postcard and write "spaghetti" on the back. I'll take care of expenses." Not knowing what else to do, the nurse took the money and flew to Italy.

    Six months went by, and then one day the doctor's wife called him at the office and said, "Dear, you received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don't understand what it means."

    The doctor said, "Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you."

    Later that evening the doctor came home, read the postcard, and fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital emergency room. The head medic stayed back to comfort the wife. He asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest.

    So the wife picked up the card and read: "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti - Two with sausage and meatballs; two without."

    Feel better soon!

  6. John,
    GO TO THE E.R. !!!
    Chest pain is nothing to wait on.
    Praying for you,
    Loving Annie

  7. Do NOT procrastinate - get it checked out right away. And keep us posted. (And yes, I'll be praying.)

    Thank you for the Reflection award. Very sweet of you. I just returned from vacation and am catching up on your blog. For some reason, blogger wouldn't let me comment on that post. I'll be paying it forward soon.
