Well, I promised to let you know the results of my latest TTE.
I was just informed that there are now two valves with backflow. Not severe, but it's happening.
Some of the good muscle in the previous TTE is now Hypokinetic. It isn't working well and just barely pumping.
Some of the previous Hypokinetic muscle is now Akinetic. That is not pumping at all.
My Ejection Fraction has gone from 56% down to 50%.
Not great news, but, at least it isn't terrible news.
I have lost some ground, but I am still going. I will make it through this as I have everything else.
So, I guess I am doing OK. A bit depressed over this news, but I will deal with it.
Have a smoke? HELL NO!! Nothing will make me ever go back to those things!!
Keep your quit strong my friends. Nothing is worth throwing away what you have gained.
Keep that journey going strong.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
