You know they didnt check that or a troponin which probably would have been helpful. I think the d dimer is frequently positive in pregnancy and we were making the decision to avoid imaging. However, if it had been negative I would have felt better. The troponin would be nice just to make sure there is no myocarditis component if it were pericarditis- though if it were positive, I would have warranted a much more invasive workup. I see my ob for te first time on Tuesday and we can talk about it. To my surprise tylenol really does help with the pain and it is sooo much worse when lying down. Bed rest would be killer. I dont desat or get hypoxic even with exertion.
Going to go shopping with my mother in law for fun stuff. Headed to church.
DS said he wanted to be a pink school bus today, but I think I talked him into being a John Deere tractor. DH is going to have his work cut out for him. ;)
Glad you are able to have a little comfort with all of this Tiffany.
I was going to run as much of the 5K this morning as possible and walk when I needed to but I ended up running the whole thing. I walked a teeny tiny bit up a steep hill since I could walk that faster than I could run it. I ran it in 30:15 so I was pretty proud of myself for running all of it. It's so much easier to run with a large group of ppl because there are ppl you want to keep up with. My pastor's wife was walking it and fell down. She ended up dislocating two of fingers on her left hand. Graphic stuff ahead....I guess because of the dislocation the bone was sticking out of her fingers so they thought they were broken. She ended up going to surgery to have them relocated, cleaned and sutured back together. I feel so bad for her and our pastor. He was the one that got this 5K all put together and had a theme and sermon for it and wasn't able to preach it. The associate pastor ended up preaching his sermon. All in all it was a good morning. We then had church outside and lunch after at the church.
Firstly congrats on running a whole 5k.
Secondly, sorry for your pastors wife. She is definitely in my prayers.
Had a great day at work. Tomorrow, I will start with one patient in the hospital. Crazy. Also, Ive got a few clinic patients. And some more orientation.
My pastor's wife got d/c from the hospital yesterday morning. There was a fx in one of the fingers so they removed a piece of bone. Then they kept her over night to load her up with atb's and help with pain control. Guess she's in pretty bad pain. My mom saw pics of it on pastor's phone and she said it was bad.
I ran again yesterday. Only 1.33 miles. Now I'm really sore! I decided to give up on the couch to 5K program because it's easier for me to just go and run. I get to bored with the program and I think when I'm running then have to stop and walk it's worse. I just get through the uncomfortable part of running, then stop and walk and have to start all over again. It's gotten me to be able to run a 5K. I'm getting excited for the Color Run because I think I'll actually be able to run the whole thing.
Good luck with your hospital pt today!
I think I am finally done painting the room. 2 coats of primer and 3 coats of paint. My DH is never going to paint a room with me again. I'm to OCD so notice every little flaw on the wall. I just need to tell myself it's not going to be perfect. Our next project is our family room. He made a comment about hiring someone to do it. Now I can see why he'd want to do that.
I am kind of like that with painting. DH thinks that white walls are fine - that is what his mom had (she hates coloured walls) but I have slowly changed his mind.

I bought some pillows that I'm using as my color palette. I just need to have my friend come over and help me pick out colors. I almost started ripping off the wallpaper border today, then it'd make me paint.
We're renting now. They told us we are free to paint. Since ErIc is home and good with that stuff, it might end up on his honey do list if he gets bored. I really like the colors our homeowners used. I love colored walls, but had no time with med school to really get into those projects much.
I have to do the run/walk thing when I train. Eric can just run. Yesterday he ran 3 miles. Three days ago he ran 9 with no training in months. I cant even run a mile.
The hospital went well and I really enjoyed it. It was hard for me to do all the walking that requires right now, but I do love it. I had a question at 4:45 about calling ortho and it took me a long time to find a doc in the office. I think that is marvelous. Some places I interviewed were not like that.
My DH can run with no problem and no training. I'm a horrible runner. I wish I could get better. I guess I just need to keep it up. DH really hates running and I'm starting to like it better. We are going to go on a bike ride today. We can't do much exercising together since he's on call so much and when he is he needs to stay pretty close to home.
Glad your job is going well for you. Sounds like you found a good fit.
So I had a job interview last night that went really well. I have severe tmj and right now am on disability (not that I have seen any money yet and I have been off since March 15th). Right now I work in a call centre which is making the tmj worse (never even knew I had tmj) so I can't go back to my job. I am getting pressure to quit from my manager, it would not effect the disability claim but it would end my health benefits (right now we have dual coverage) and my drug benefits include fertility drugs so I really don't want to lose that. DH's insurance changed in October and not sure if they cover fertility stuff. The new job would be awesome but we would have to buy a second car for DH to take to work. I would also have a weeks training back where I grew up and my family still is (getting paid to see my family sounds great! ). Probably won't know anything until next week but I am SO NOT patient. I HATE waiting!
Congrats on your job interview. What is this job. Waiting is so hard. Hopefully you'll hear some good news about it soon.
Tiffany...how is your chest pain doing?
