I left a meeting this afternoon to go get an EKG, chest x-ray and blood work. It wasn't on my list of errands for today, but I realized that I really should go see someone before I go on several business trips this week and next. Since Friday I've been having occasional shortness of breath and racing heart rate. It doesn't last more than five minutes or so, but it's been more than one isolated incident. So I finally called to see if they could squeeze me in this week. As luck would have it, they could fit me in tomorrow afternoon but wanted to have test results before my visit. Hence the last minute lab work.
It was a lovely visit in that my x-ray tech was super fast and friendly and my phlebotomist was a real pro. So we'll see what the doctor says tomorrow and for now I'm going to bed early.
