Today is Wear Red for Women :)

Today, Feb 1st, is National Wear Red for Women!  This is to bring awareness to the fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.  The kids and I have our red on today...there isn't much red in the closets of our household since we aren't GA fans, we're Gators fans, but we do have 1 shirt.  Rianna and Gage were so excited this morning to wear their red shirts.  It made my heart melt.

So, updates anyone?  Not much...Dr. Lane's nurse called back and said that she had read the results from my sleep study, and that I'm being referred to Dr. Howard, a sleep specialist.  She (the nurse) said that all she knows is that my O2 levels drop when I'm sleeping.  Yeah, I already know that, hence the reason for the initial sleep study.  All I can think about is how I'm soooooooo old before my time.  I hate it.  I thought that after surgery, I wouldn't have to worry so much.  Especially since they said I wouldn't need more surgery (unless something drastic happens).  In the meantime, I'm having up and down is actually a down day.  I hate the feeling that I can't walk across campus at school without feeling like I'm gonna drop dead.  My text to David this morning:  Everytime my chest hurts or there's a small discomfort, I get worried that I'm going to drop dead.  I'm not exaggerating, I'm not being a drama queen, I'm legitimately scared.  

I hate feeling this way, but I can't help it.  I guess it just comes w the territory.  

Anyway, I'm going to try to make myself feel better.  I don't want to be Debbie Downer or pessimistic or whiny.  

I am going to post a link to the American Heart Association's website:
