SOL Challenge Day 10
Today, as you will see, I am putting my heart into this post…literally.
Dr. Hafiz has been my primary care physician for the last 13 years. He took me on when the doctor I was seeing left the area and I had no one to take over my care. He is a specialist, cardiology, and really didn’t have to do this, but he did and I am eternally grateful.. Thank you Dr. Hafiz.
Some of you know that at the end of January I spent an overnight in the hospital because of some chest pain. After talking with Dr. Hafiz it was decided that I should have a stress test, which I had a few weeks ago. Yesterday I had an appointment with Dr. Hafiz and during our discussion we went over the results of my test.
Dr. Hafiz was excited to show me the pictures taken during my stress test. The results showed that my heart is strong and working well. The red on the pictures, if I have this correct, shows blood flow through my heart. The redder the better? (My words not his). You have no idea the immense relief I felt when he told me this.
Somehow Dr. Hafiz found out that I have a blog, no doubt thanks to Kathy who had the appointment time slot with him right before mine. We talked about my blog and he even put a link to it on his phone. He then asked me if I would like to take a picture of results and post them on my blog tomorrow (which in now today).
Anyway, since I think of you as my writing family and friends that I can share anything with , here I lay bare my heart. I share with you a part of me that only my doctor has seen. Please treat it kindly.
Once again, thank you Dr. Hafiz for being there when I needed you. Although Dr. Hafiz could speak quite knowledgeably about my heart, he couldn’t, unfortunately, speak about my brain which I know is addled after 40 years of Middle School students. That would take a different kind of specialist. Oh well, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
As far as these pictures go, hey, just be glad I didn’t share last year’s colonoscopy pictures with you.
