today i got to take off the nighttime oxygen monitor, return it and put on a 24 hour blood pressure monitor. every ten minutes the thing goes off. except at night when it goes off every twenty minutes. it goes back at 7:30 tomorrow morning.
next was a 'liposuction" of blood and tissue from my stomach that has some enzymes in it that will show some rare heart thing. then i had an arterial gas test. asked for the best blood drawer, didn't get her at first. after 5 sticks someone got it. and then to top it off, a biopsy of the inside of my lip which believe it or not was the thing i was most apprehensive about and turned out to be a piece of cake. swollen and hurting but that will go away. looking for another rare disease. will know in 2 days.
they are nothing if not thorough. some more unusual things again tomorrow. a swallow evaluation.
going to bed now and hopefully will not get up until the bp machine comes off. thanks for the notes. talk to you tomorrow.
