5% isn’t that much of a discount if you go to store, but it is a lot when you are talking about ejection fractions and heart functions. It’s something you don’t want a discount on. It’s something you hope for an increase.
I had my annual echo cardiogram last week and met with my cardiologist yesterday to discuss the the results. 35%. That’s my current ejection fraction. Last year was 40%. The year before was 45%. The year before that was 51%. I have been dropping by 5% a year! Does that mean that the sarcoidosis never really left? And now that I am finally weaning off of prednisone after twelve years, would I have to go back on it?
I will do a PET scan in a week or two to see if the sarcoidosis is active again in the heart and lungs and thinking of all my little symptoms, I am hoping it isn’t and that I am just having prednisone withdrawal.
As someone once said, I can’t remember who but it went something like “Worry is a down payment on something you may never own”, so why worry? I’ll have my tests and go from there.
