What is it with MEN??????

Pearls and Dreams

Don must be feeling better, because he's complaining about the testing that Dr. S & the cardiologists are ordering. They've ordered all these tests in the past, and he's cancelled them saying "she can find out all she needs to know from a blood test"

Well, ok, except, if that was true, then all these test would never have had to be developed. He keeps saying his heart is perfectly normal and having atrial fibulation is a normal heart condition that doesn't need to be worried about. As long as you take the meds, then it's no big deal. The fact that the doctor has explained to him a million times what CAN (but won't necessarily) go wrong with a/fib ... he's not believing. "My heart is normal, it's no big deal, I have a perfectly normal heart why are they doing all this?"

BECAUSE YOU HAVE ATRIAL FIBULATION & MITROVALVE PROLAPSE!!!!!
Found out yesterday, when he had his teeth pulled last month, he didn't take his antibiotics, because he felt it was unneccesary because he has a normal heart.

I don't know if his heart stuff is truely related to why he's so sick right now, I kind of suspected it was when they put him on the monitor and won't take him off, and are giving him a potassium drip(IV) and they've got a cardiologist coming in 2 to 3 times a day to talk to him.

He's going to drive me to the brink of insanity ...ok ...he's already driven me to the brink of insanity, he's going to push me over ...will Mad House Man doctor be there to treat me when I get there???????
