Read the paperwork!!

Today did not go quite as planned. Hubby found some paperwork he had not read. He was not supposed to eat within four hours of his tests. The cardiology tests could take from 2 to 4 hours. So that meant we did not go to Wichita to the VA. He didnot get out of the cardiology tests in time. We did not go to Aldi, it is in Wichita, near the VA. Hubby ate early enough that it was okay for the test. He did take a medicine he was not supposed to. He did not tell them about it, though. I was not allowed in the waiting area for the test. so I spent time in the main lobby and in the car. Bob had a chemical stress test and some other imaging. They asked him how his chest felt when they gave him these IV medicines. In two weeks we will get a report on today's test, I think, as well as him having a CT Scan. I will go for t hat as well. When we got home hubby took a three hour nap. I am ready for bed now, myself. See you all tomorrow.

He has some heart issues, I hope they are not getting worse. In two weeks we will have a face to face with his doctor.

I think we actually have had it on hand since this was scheduled six months ago. We put everything in a binder to keep track of.

My husband always call them to ask if he can eat, drink and take his usual medications, most of the time they ask to fast the 6 hours before the tests.

Hubby seems to get the phone numbers mixed up. People try to get in touch with me to find out what he really needs and I do not hear phone calls because my phone is on silent. I think we had this paperwork for a while.

@GardenGerty The doctors send us emails, at least we have some written to show in case of problems.

I hope that the results are good. That is a while to wait for them. After all of that, it sounds like that was a well-earned nap.

He has some heart problems, and this is reasonable monitoring of them.
