I had two appointments today. One for blood work. The nurse was very good this time, got the vein on the first attempt. They needed LOTS of my blood apparently, they filled eight of those little vials. I also had a follow up with the cardiologist. The main purpose of this visit was to see how the diuretics were doing to remove all the water weight. They were shooting for roughly 2lbs a day. The good news is, I somehow managed to drop 60lbs in a week. I had thought I was doing well just judging by how I felt, but this surprised me and the doctor. He recommended staying on the pills for another week. He'll see me again, next Wednesday and we'll schedule my heart catheter if everything continues well. He also did another EKG on me and it appeared good. My blood pressure is down a bit. Next to see my primary care doctor tomorrow. </td>
