I went to the cardiologist for a routine follow up. I had to get another Echo done before the appointment because the doctor wanted to see if I had improved since being diagnosed. So, I went in and had the echo done. It is pretty cool seeing your heart on the screen. I was trying to read and figure things out but all the words were abbreviated and were medical terms that I did not know, but I thought I saw EF 38%. I got happy for a while, but did not get my hopes up because I didn't know what exactly I was looking at. I went back to the cardio to get the results and the doctor came in with a smile and said "Your heart is improving". She said she likes to round down the EF numbers and told me that my EF was 35%. So the number that I saw earlier was correct. I am really glad that God is touching my heart and helping it improve. I'll go back in 3 months.
