I went in for my monthly BP checkup and had a good appointment. The Dr gave me a RX for hand splints. The picture didn't look all that wonderful but if they are going to help me have straight fingers that I am all there!

I have a small lesion on my arm and I showed it to him. He wants me to see a derma. to get it checked but I am thinking I am just going to see my surgeon and get it off. :unsure:

We went over my heart again and I have to go next week for a EKG test. Also I have a dry cough and if I still have it next week, he wants me to call him and he will send me for an x-ray. He is wondering if things are changing because I have SOB so much.

I guess thats about all we did. I will let ya all know how my EKG is.

Thaks for the update. It sounds like you have a very productive apt. That always puts me at ease knowing that things are being taken care of properly. I really do hope that your EKG reports are good ones! :)
