    in one of my many visits to Princess Margaret Hobbithall,  (melanoma)  a nice hunky NEW doctor asked me about my heart murmer!  well I did not know I had a heart murmer, I never had one before.  He then  told me it was rather  pronounced.   He reported it all along with some strange observances, to my fam doc.

    During me 'pre surgical check by fam doctor)  which is needed prior to any surgeries my  fam doc ordered a  2D echocardiogram.  They got me inn the SAME DAY for this test.   It was NEAT to watch and listen.  No results yet.  But it better not stop my already scheduled 'extra side boob remmovals'

     

    I know most murmers are innocent?  this one has a neat name.  "newly found Systolic Ejection Murmer'  I am afeered I will become more famous at my local hobbithall.  Yesterday, we went in for the pre surgical blood labs, tests, ECG, paper work, anasthesiologist consult, and pharmacutical check of the drugs I am on at present.   THEY ALL KNEW ME!  I think they think I live for the hobbithall.   EWWWW  it is a nice cosy one, but Ii am not in love with it! hahah.

    Countdown to non reconstruction (shunt disqualifies me totally)  but I need the infamous 'dog ears'  (more like grapefruits removed from both axillae. (and pathology OF COURSE)  is September 8th.  I am taking bets on how many drains this time?  (turkey basters I mean)
