Health Update

I received a call from the Cardiologist this morning, and based on my event monitor readings, he is putting me on a heart beta blocker called Metoprolol. This will help keep my heart from racing (Tachycardia) every time I move. It also causes fatigue, but not much I can do about that. I'll meet with him Thursday morning to see how it's working.
I've had a sore throat, swollen glands, cough and persistent headache since Friday evening, so after talking with the Oncologist this morning, they are putting me on antibiotics for an infection. I will go in tomorrow and have labs done and discuss how this will affect the chemo schedule for this week.
