South Dakota Barn

I snapped a photo of this old South Dakota barn on my way back from Sioux Falls



Linking to Barn Charm 101

I had an angiogram in Sioux Falls because I had failed a stress test.  The angiogram showed everything was fine with my heart!  That's the good news.  But still don't know what's causing  the shortness of breath when I exert myself.  They are thinking it may be exercise induced asthma.  So I'll be having more tests.  Good excuse for sitting around, not doing much.  :0)

Thanks for all your prayers and concern.  Have a great week.  I'll try and catch up on all your posts.

Until next time.

Barb

Glad to hear that your heart is healthy, but hope you get it figured out soon. I get winded, but it's from not exerting myself often enough. lol

Deanna said...

Oh so sorry to hear of your health problems, glad to hear the heart is in good shape, but it must be distressing to not know what is causing your shortness of breath. Prayers for an explanation. Great barn shot. PS Take it easy!!

Mari said...

I hope the shortness of breath will be an easy fix.

This barn was very stately in its day. So sad to see it going, like many around here. enJOYed

Yay on the angiogram. I am on the procedure merry go round as you know and it is not fun at all. I took four days off from all electronics and cooked up a storm and likely gained five pounds. I want to get in the garden but it's raining every day and mosquitoes are all over. I am thinking/praying for you Barb. Rest up and take care please. xoxo, Olive

good news on the heart! i hope they can figure out what's causing the shortness of breath. that is worrisome, i'm sure.

great barn! like the 'flap-down' loft opening. like an old pair of pajamas.

Brian King said...

That's good news about your heart! I hope they pinpoint the cause for you.

That's a great old barn even in the falling down stage. I bet it was a beauty in its prime!

A bit sad to see it being destroyed, but also beautiful in your picture.
Good Tuesday, Marit.

Hi Barb,

I hope you feel better soon. It does sound like it could be asthma.

Good to know that the tests had good results!
Take care and rest, sometimes accumulate tasks and were sickened because of it!

Bom saber que os testes tiveram bons resultados!
Se cuide e descanse, as vezes acumulamos tarefas e ficamos adoentados por causa disso!

Good to hear your heart is ok... they'll find what's wrong... continued prayers!

Great barn find & it's probably a good thing you got the shot, cuz it's gonna bite the dust, soon. =0

Thanks for joining =)

Kathy said...

She's beginning to look a little tired, but she still exudes a certain amount of beauty!

Glad you had good results from your cardiac test. I have to go for a stress test next week. It seems my BP has kind of gone sky high but no other symptoms of any problems. An additional med attempting to bring it down even made it go higher. Go figure!

Robyn said...

Barb, Hope the Doc can figure out what is going on with you. Glad your heart is OK.

Take picts to relax and edit them to have fun!

Terri Buster said...

Glad it wasn't anything with your heart...yes, take it easy for a bit!!

Jacquelineand.... said...

So glad it wasn't your heart; relax and take care of yourself. Love the barn pic!

~Mary said...

Barb, so glad there is nothing wrong with your heart. I hope you find out what is ailing you soon. You are in my prayers. I also just wanted to say I love this barn photo. I remember when we were kids we used to say barns like that had a giant that sat on them so they got squished! Hope all gets better soon. :)

isn't it a nice escape from everything in your world, just for a moment to find something worth capturing in your camera. It's a lovely, rustic barn Barb and I'm glad it popped up on your way back home. Take care (I'm glad your report was fine).

Hi, Barb

At least you know the problem isn't your heart, and that's a good thing. I imagine that the new tests will lead to a better idea of what is wrong. I do hope that it's nothing too serious and that you'll get some helpful advice on how to get better soon. After all, you have barns to photograph!

Wishing you well and sending up a little prayer,
Karen

Love the barn! What a Blessing that your heart is good and I hope that you find out what has been causing the shortness of breath real soon.

Marie said...

I'm glad your angiogram turned out well. I went through the same sort of thing in 2001. All of a sudden I had my heart pounding and couldn't breathe. They ran every test they could on my heart, and it was fine. But, I also had extreme fatigue. They got the pounding under control with meds but the shortness of breath and the fatigue has remained. I have been tested for SO MANY things, and have been told that I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that was onset with a virus. I also have arthritis, so I have a lot of overall pain as well, and I have asthma. So, I have been living with this "condition" for the last 11 years. Recently I had the Dr. check me out for a few more things...still no diagnosis, except that I have CFS. It's annoying to say the least but I am so grateful it isn't something worse. I hope they pinpoint your problem, Barb, and that it will be something they can treat! Take care of yourself! I'll be keeping you in my prayers!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

OH I'm glad to hear your heart is good...and I'll keep you in my prayers that they can help your shortness of breath, too! You always have the best barn photos! I've always wanted to just drive back roads and take photos of barns and churches!

Annmarie Pipa said...

good news on the heart! pulmonary system next to rule out...my daughter had occasional exercise induced asthma...would happen so randomly...she carries an inhaler for those rare times...works.
love your barns.

Elaine said...

Love the barn! Looks like the roof is going to collapse very soon. You may have caught it in the nick of time.

Hope you find an answer soon to your health problems. It's frustrating when they can't figure out what's going on. I'll keep you in my prayers.

eileeninmd said...

Great barn find! I am happy to hear your heart is fine, now to find out the real problem. I hope you find the answer soon. Take care and have a great day!

Linda said...

So glad the heart is fine - hopefully whatever they find will be easier to treat! Love this barn - looks like it is slowly sinking...will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Sherri B. said...

What a beautiful, old barn...I'm sorry to hear you're having some health issues. What a relief that your heart is fine - I hope they're able to figure out the problem and get it fixed! I'm sending prayers and good thoughts your way. :)

Renae said...

thank you for your comment regarding my granddaughter's pose. Hope you know what is going on soon. The sooner the better? take care.

Maple Lane said...

So thankful you received a good report. I love this barn.
I hope they can determine what is wrong and get you to feeling better soon. Take care.

EG CameraGirl said...

Interesting weathered barn. I hope you don't have to go through too many tests before you figure out what the problem is. I'm glad it's not your heart, though!

Rosemary Aubut said...

Hope they find the cause! Great barn shot!

Tammy said...

That's an oldie but a goodie!

Glad all is well with your heart. I agree with Amy - I have exercise induced asthma and do much better when I am getting some regular exercise -

Rita said...

Hope you are feeling better. Good luck with all those test.
