In Scientific Terms,"Unremarkable."
As some of you know, I had a surgical experience last year and it was a whopper. But all is well (I'm still here) and yesterday another great development took place. I had a follow up with my cardio guy, Dr. Mark Wolf, recently (it's actually my follow up to my December follow up). This included an echocardiogram. The findings were important. In his medical words, I am "UNREMARKABLE." That's what you want from an echocardiogram.
There is great meaning to this, because it means I can stop taking Warfarin, a blood thinner. Fantastic. Warfarin is a high maintenance medication. I had to take 16 pills (2 mg each) every week and get my elbow pinched with a needle every 3-4 weeks to do a blood check. No more! I am unremarkable.
OK, gallbladder. You're next.
