Another doctor visit…

I saw the cardiologist this morning.  I have been having some problems with the meds clashing with one another so the merry go round is spinning again.  I hope I am not allergic to the new med.  Tomorrow I go back to the cardiologist to be fitted with a Holter heart monitor which I will wear for 30 days.  This will be a pain in the wazoo but I agree that it has to  be done to see how the meds are controlling the A-fib.  (irregular heartbeat)  I have so many doctor appointments the next few weeks that I have stopped counting.  Mixed in with all of that I have a dental appointment too. 

After the doctor visit my daughter and I stopped for scripts, then to pay bills, then to Kroger then back to Avanti’s where we had lasagna with salad and warm bread and butter.  I brought half of mine home as I don’t seem to have much appetite lately.

During my walk in the cemetery the other day I stopped to read many of the stones.  Below is a very interesting one.


If you will click on the pic you will be able to read the verse.

And now, I am absolutely worn out.  You all stay safe and be happy.




  1. I could swear I've read that someplace before. Comforting!

    I hope all goes well with all your appointments. 30 days with the Holter will give them a more complete picture. I also hope your meds get figured out and you're not allergic. Just too much lately!!

    Love and hugs!!

  2. My hubby had to wear one of those and if not for that I feel I would have lost him. His heart would stop beating for a few seconds (not sure if that's A-fib) and he'd pass out. The monitor caught it and he ended up having a pace maker. Very scary. Those machines are life savers that's for sure. I hope everything gets straighened out for you so you can start feeling a lot better! Hugs

  3. Hi Beth,

    That certainly is an interesting verse on the gravestone, I wonder how old the person was, does contain comforting words.

    Hope you get your health problems sorted, oh dear, so many people seem to have them, at the moment.

    Hugs Nita.

  4. I hope they find a stable spot so you are all better with meds that don't conflict. I wonder if that monitor gets FX radio. Jist joking my friend. I hope the next few weeks fly by and yer all back on track. Hugs my friend.

  5. That was a wonderful inscription on the headstone.
    Good luck with the meds Beth. They can be tricky.

  6. I'm very sorry for you Beth that I know that how mach make you a nuisance and worn out.
    Please take care my friend,
    Big Hugs,

  7. Sis I can't imagine wearing something for a whole month, but I sure hope that it will help tell something that will make things much better for you. Hope you get stronger and get better soon. : )

  8. I loved the verse on the tombstone Twin. I would love to have it on mone one day.

    As for you...please please get all better soonest. I hate seeing all this going on but I am so grateful you are near your daughter. xoxoxoxox always.

  9. Good luck over the next 30 days with the monitor. My mum had one on more than one occasion when I was growing up. She always told us that you get used to it being there after awhile.

    You're in my prayers!

  10. Gotta find the problem to find the solution...even if it's a pain...thinking of you with much love--hope it all evens out soon.

    Am watching our Cards in the 10th inning...yikes!

    Loved the inscription. My dad's was a poem called "Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep." It's beautiful--google it.

    Blessings my friend!

  11. Lovely inscription. I sure pray they find the right combination and get to the bottom of everything.

  12. That really is an amazing verse. I think it really is food for thought. I hope you find a balance with the health issues you're facing right now. I know that it's a burden. God bless you dear Beth, get well soon.

  13. 30 days? That IS a pain. I hope all goes well. That saying on the tomb stone is beautiful.
    Blessings, Joanne

  14. Thinking of you Beth, and I hope and pray for better health for you, and everything gets resolved. I love the poem on the gravestone.
    Take care and get well sooner than soon.
    Hugs, Dianne :)

  15. Blessings....
    Good to read you are taking care of yourself and managing to get some smiles, laughter and precious time with your daughter.

    wow that head stone is lovely. i'd say that person was well loved.

  16. Thinking of you Beth across the Pond hope all goes well for you. The virse is so beautiful on the stone. Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx
