Do you know why I'm grinning? Let me tell you, my special MyLot friends. that I received a very positive doctor’s report today. After a thorough cardiology exam the doctor said that my heart rhythm is back to normal. He also gave me the OK to stop my blood thinning medication for 5 days so I can receive my epidural. That consists of pain blockers injected directly into my spine where 3 vertebrae are deteriorating. That will last about 6-8 months. I certainly hope I do too.
