And it’s not because of too much green beer!

About a week and half ago my Dr heard a heart murmur ( I went in because od a sore back!) and that set some things into motion. Some blood work followed by a visit to a cardiologist and then today...... more bloodwork, an echocardiogram, and a stress test. Ok fine! You gotta do what you gotta do and since heart disease runs in my family I guess being checked out is all good.
Last week the Dr had me staryt on baby aspirin and niacin. The niacin is for my cholestrol which is high but she expected it to be since there again is family history.
Yesterday I had the most lovely experience with the niacin...... an instant and bit painful sunburn feeling all over my body! This lasted about 30 min and then went away but left me wiped out and freezing.
Today was all that testing so I had to fast....which also meant no coffee! Yikes no coffee??? Testing began at 7:30am and I didn’t finish until 11:30am. Still no coffee......argh!!!!
So I get home and get the coffee brewing. I have to make up for lost time with my coffee. Oops! I should have eaten first!!! So this has me feeling a little woozy.....
And feeling GREEN!
