Handling the Shock of a New Diagnosis

Posted 03-03-2017 09:08 AM by sqlgirl

This my first blog entry, and I am not quite sure how to begin. Perhaps I will just write as if writing a message to myself, a message that I or my family can review in the future.

I was diagnosed with non ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy in January 2017. As of March 2017, we still don't know what caused it. My ejection fraction was between 25% and 27% according to the nuclear stress test and echo cardiogram. Two weeks later, my heart cath showed an ejection fraction of 20%. ...

Tonsillectomy Recovery

Posted 06-19-2016 03:37 PM by Kaceyn1266

Hello Everyone! I am on day 5 of my tonsil recovery process and it has been anything BUT easy. Days 1-3 were a breeze compared to how I have been feeling recently. On day 3 I hit my hunger peak and could not take it anymore. I force ate mashed potatoes and wonton soup which tasted absolutely amazing.

Tonsillectomy surgery

Hey everyone-
Today, June 14, I finally had them take my tonsils out after getting strep 6 times last year. I went to the ENT who agreed the only way to stop this is taking them out. So, here's my story about how my experience was before and after the surgery! I got there early in the morning around 6:45, and they had me do routine paperwork and waited until they called me back to take my vitals. They make you pee before hand, which is difficult since you have to stop drinking after midnight....
