Hi everyone.. I went to see my cardiologist last week to see what he thought about my bad tooth .. this is what he said *** you have no choice** it must come out... He did my echocardiogram and yes my heart is huge , pressing on my trachea ... but all of my heart functions are very stable and my blood pressure was great ! so what Dr. Ferguson says is lets get this thing out asap ! So On Tuesday July 12th i am scheduled with Dr.T and his very qualified trained staff to get it out. He plans to give me just enough gas to put me asleep and to pull it and wake me up asap ! I will have an iv for just a wee amount of fluid as i can not have to much because of my heart .. but also in case there is any emergency .. and so i can get some pain meds .. mom has had me on and off a low dose of antibiotics .. but my tummy can only tolerate a few days than i have to go off of them trying to keep the infection under control.
Dr. Ferguson spoke to Dr.T and confirmed all this and promised that he will have his cell phone on him at all times in case of any emergency .. and i was there when he told his secretary to put an alert on the entire cardiac staff for Tuesday the 12th just in case i would need them for any reason ! DR. Ferguson won't actually be in his office that day but he promised he is only a minute away from Dr.T's office !!! so if you would keep me in your thoughts next Tuesday we would sure appreciate it !
