I feel better about things after seeing my doctor and getting some tests done. My chest x-ray is clear and no problems showed up on my ECG. I've been put on a stronger dose of lasix. There's still no understanding of why my heart rate is up and why I have edema but I'll be having more bloodwork (with some additional things being tested) tomorrow morning. My doctor thinks the problems are from the chemo or the prednisone.
I'm to continue taking my pulse regularly and weigh myself every day. I should be able to accommodate that while I'm in Vancouver. My doctor said I should be fine to go. He would have recommended against travel if I were going out of the country, but Vancouver should be okay. YEAH!!
I'm relieved to be at this point, at least, today.
What I feel badly about is missing my lunch date with Lou. I totally forgot. I think I was a little caught up in my alarm over these recent health issues and the fear that they might interfere with my leaving tomorrow. SO SORRY, LOU, to have stood you up!!
