Heart Update

I saw my cardiologist today to discuss the results of my MRI from last month. He said there were some abnormalities, but nothing definitive to indicate ARVD, so I have to undergo more testing. He wants to schedule me for two more tests, hopefully next week. One's a right ventricular-gram where they are going to inject me with some kind of dye and then see the contrasting colors in my right ventricle to see if they can tell anything and he also wants to do some biopsies where they will take six tissue samples to test. He says it's a safe procedure. I don't really have any choice because I need to know.

I was very frustrated because I thought the MRI would tell us something more and it didn't, so now the timeline just gets longer and longer. Oh well. I think I'm going to go ahead and start exercising again though because I don't want to sit around for another month doing nothing. I'm not too stressed out about it. More than anything, I just want to know one way or another so I can deal with it if I have to and have it be over.
