My heart muscle enzymes (CK-MB) are normal!!!!! That means that the inflammation in my heart muscle has finally stopped! When I got out of the hospital a couple of years ago, my heart had been stressed so much that my CK-MB was 75 and my CK had jumped from normal to 1500! We were able to get the CK back to normal about a year ago, but the heart just wouldn't cooperate. Monday's blood tests showed my CK-MB to be 4.7 (normal is < 5)! This means that ALL of my standard blood work items are now in the normal ranges.

Life is gooooooooood!

Big Hugs to you all,

Janey, I'll join in Margaret's toast for you, but with my hibiscus tea instead.

Major congrats, that is an enormous health improvement and you have certainly earned it!
