A new experience today. Doctor ordered a stress test a few weeks ago and today was the day. Between trying to find a vein to put the medication in then laying completely still for 15 minutes while the machine did it's work, then a long walk to the exercise room where they put in all the little EKG hookups and a walk on the treadmill....thanks to Sparkpeople....I surprised the three technicians at how well I did even using 3 liters of oxygen. Then more medicine inserted and more laying still while they took pictures. To prepare for this test could not have coffee for 3 days before and nothing by mouth (except water) after midnight before the test. This test last 2 hours. So...first stop after the test was Casey's for a large coffee! Just thought I would share in case others need a little before hand idea of what to expect as I did not have a clue!
