Heart Art

While in the doctor office this afternoon I snapped this photo of a hand-drawn human heart. Great art! The author’s signature is on the drawing but rather small in this image.

Not sure I should post this really, not sure if it’s a copyright violation. If it were, I’d take it down immediately. Anyway, my cardiologists wants to run another test which I’m not so sure I really need.

Top that with the woman at the checkout window stating plainly that my insurance will cover only eighty percent of the test, leaving me to pay out of pocket several hundred dollars. Uhg.

Getting older is so costly but I can guarantee myself one thing – losing a good bit of weight will go a very long way in lowering my BP so I’m going to make one big change in my diet starting tomorrow.

I’m so tired of the blood pressure battle I could just about scream. At least my back is healing up relatively well…

I hold no copyright to this image…

  1. It is posts like these that reinforce how lucky we are or possibly how much we take forgranted in having our health care covered. Very best wishes in your journey to get that B under control. It’s not easy the battle with weight. I’m sending lots of positive energy your way.

  2. That is a nice piece of art. I’m with a new cardiologist and having to go back to square one. I’m cutting all my blood pressure drugs for ten days, then 24 hr ambulatory monitoring and then new drugs or more tests. So, so, so, boring! I’m lucky though as it is all free.

    1. Wow, sounds dangerous to cut all the meds at once. I hope this will all be worth the time and hassle for you Katherine. And free?
