Cardiologist / update

For those of you that live in this area I am looking for a cardiologist that you can recommend. I have been to two and would like a third opinion. Preferably someone around here. My oncologist nurse gave me another name but he is also pretty far. It would be great if I could see someone closer that comes recommended. If you know of someone, please e-mail or call me.

Also, It looks like I will have to have an MRI of my lower back done this week. I have had pain there for a couple of weeks that does not seem to be going away. I thought I pulled a muscle, but will need to get it checked. I am on 2 new meds. over the past month or two ( one for BP and one for anxiety) and having trouble with fatigue and sleeping through the night. Spent most of the day today on the couch. I hate feeling like this. I'm not allowed to have too many "pity parties", my doctor says people will stop coming :) So, hopefully I will feel better tomorrow :)

Please be in prayer about the test this week, the upcoming tests at the end of May and for discernment about what is best for me regarding my heart. Apparently, any time there is "permanent damage" to the heart it is considered having "heart failure". To what degree and what to do is what I am uncertain about at this point.

Thanks all for keeping up with the blog(s) and the prayer support!
