Hi everyone,


Thank you very much again for all the messages and offer to help me. It means a lot to me more than anything....   And I just changed the setting of the mailing list to avoid confusion and mail overload. You can still email and reply to the group, but it comes to me first to be approved.  


I also got the blood test back which was fine, so one less worry.)) Symptoms still being the same, I feel pain in the center of the chest, in the heart, side of the chest, upper back, panting, cold feet, numbness in hands and legs and feet, fatigue, dizziness, which doesn't go away after 5 days of bed rest.  I am going to Japan this Thursday and my father was able to make an appointment for total check up at a hospital where he got a successful surgery to place a stent in his blocked heart artery.


You might wonder why I'm so in hurry to go to Japan. Well, the cost is one big factor.  When my father got cancer and received 2-month chemo, treatments, hospitalization and the heart surgery afterwards, all he had to pay out of pocket was only $2,500! Nobody can believe this I guess... The rest was covered by medical insurance by national government, supplemental governmental health insurance for elders and some local government insurance.  Who can beat that? lol  So, I'll be with much less worry for medical bills at least if I go there now when my parents are still alive....


And my cell phone is now working after drying it out, too.  


Enough updates for now, and again thank you very much for all your prayers and wishes. Occasionally I feel very warm and nice around my heart suddenly for no apparent reason... and I decided to think it's from your sending nice thoughts my way)). Merci infiniment!
