Monday Monday...

It's Monday morning and we are pretty low key around here.  Carla has had a cold for the last two days and so will spend another day in bed trying to get better.  I feel like our life is on loop and it just keeps repeating.

Last week, after we saw the cardiologist on Monday we heard back from Seattle and they wanted to take a look at Carla's echo.  They have decided that they want to do a 24 hour holter monitor test on her, and that they want us to see Dr. Sticka again in a month.  Her labs looked pretty good, her BNP (which measures how hard the heart is working) was down from 325 to 168, which was good news (trending down is always better than up) but I think we are all a little bit on edge because of the heart rate going up.  It is still sitting 10 to 20 beats faster a minute than her norm.  So, even though there is no damage to the heart at this point, it would be nice to figure out what the problem is and get it taken care of. Let's pray for answers.

Love, Jen
