Almost there!!!

I went in to take my second part of my pre GED test today. It was the one with Mathematics and literature which included an essay. I scored 720 on my literatature and a 520 on my mathematics. I needed to get a 410 to pass so I did better on math than I expected. Lorretta asked if i was ready to take my GED test right after I handed in my second half. I knew i must have scored good. When i heard my scores I was just ecstatic. I am going in to see her on wednesday morning to get help with some math while I am waiting to take the test. She is going to schedule me to take my GED test that day as well. She said that I could maybe get into college by January but I dont want to think about that yet. I am so proud of myself. Those words I dont say to myself often.

I got my test results back today from the doctor. Everything came out normal except for my SED levals. I am not sure exactly what that means but it has to do with my joints. He said it was a little high but nothing to worry about at this time. He has me scheduled fopr a pulmanary test to see if i might have asthma. He thinks that might be the cause of my labored breathing off and on. He said if so then he will give me some Albuteral and that should help. He said I have the go ahead to take my walks again. That maked me happy as pie.

I have to get supper started now. We have to eat early because we are going to my oldest son's football game. I am so proud of him. I dont get to see many games because of where we are. The away games are so far away. With gas prices so high (although I am glad they dropped here a bit) we cant really afford to go to away games. I am excited about tonight's game!! I hope he wins.

I hope everyone is well..Hugs to everyone. (((HUGS)))

Christine, that is SO awesome! I'm just thrilled for you. Sounds like you'll do just fine on the GED--I know you'll keep us posted!!

I think SED might be sed rate (short for sedimentation rate), which can be an indicator of inflammation. Different places abbreviate tests in different ways, but that's what sprang into this lab rat's mind when I saw SED.

Hugs, Beth
