The results of my Nuclear Stress Test were as good as it gets.
My heart pumped 75 % of the blood in my body which is the maximum a heart can pump at one time.
Maximum heart beat: 184 beats per minute; wow. At 45 years old, they only wanted it to go as high as 175. I'll admit...I was surprised at how long I could run up hill with 3 people watching my every move.

Hey, you guys, thanks for the blog land support...As I was running on the treadmill, with a radiologist injecting my veins with nuclear material...I was thinking about how nice it was to share this experience with folks who really care...that's you. It truly took the "bite" out of the whole scary experience.....and so I say.....thank you.

"you"....are....all about my heart.

I've had a nuclear stress test myself. The assistants kept urging me to walk faster and faster and kept making the treadmill go faster, too. It was scary when I knew they were putting the nuclear stuff in my arm. Even more scary was the big machine you have to lay under while the different big plates of metal go around your chest. Yes, it was all scary.

BUT BUT BUT - the OUTCOME WAS GOOD!!! YEA!!!! Enjoy the peace of knowing all is well.
