My husband had to go see a cardiologist for the first time today. He has a heart murmur. We don't know way. It just showed up a month ago on his checkup. The doctor heard it on both sides of his heart. Husband had a cholesterol panel done again today (they did this a month ago too), and had a holter monitor put on for 48 hours. He has to have an echocardiogram (ultrasound of his heart) done a week from Wednesday. Sometime after the echocardiogram is done, the Cardiologist will call with test results. If all is well, they will see Hubby in 6 months. I was glad I went to the appointment. I kept some things straight, and let the doctors know about Hubby's caffeine intake. Apparently 6 18 oz cups of coffee/soda/energy drinks are not a good idea if you consume them in one day. The recommendation is 4 normal size cups of coffee per day with at least 4 hours between them. I am going to mix his coffee with decaf coffee. I am also going to buy caffeine free diet soda for him. He can just cope with it. Then what he drinks at work will keep him to a normal amount of caffeine. The good things - Hubby has NO symptoms! He is in very good physical shape, especially for someone who works a desk job. I am still worried about him. He just wants to ignore this. I won't let him do that. He is still my best friend.
