My doc asked that I undergo a second nuclear stress test*, to see if my condition has changed. I did so, early this morning.
Patients are instructed not to have caffeine of any kind for 24 hours prior to the test. I think that's harder than the test itself.
I did so, this morning. Now my wallet is $600 lighter, and my heart and blood would set off radiation detectors at the airport. Seriously, the nuclear tech told me that if I planned to fly in the next couple days, I should ask for a note from the doctor to show the TSA/alphabet security folks.
But vacation is still months away ... dang it.
In the meantime, I'm working on a large Americano and the caffeine headache is beginning to subside.
In another half-hour I might even feel human again.
* The first was last year, after getting a couple of stents inserted in a blocked cardiac artery.
