There is absolutely NEVER a dull moment in my life...I experienced another round of tachycardia yesterday. Round 2. It happened around 12:30...after lunch. I felt it coming on, walked over to my boss (Pat), told her I was feeling like I did on Friday -- Please call Sara, I'm headed into the conference room to break this thing. I was able to hold my breath, bear down and get myself back on track.
Sara took me to GBMC. Great experience. Awesome people. I was fortunate to meet Dr Reed Riley...a cardiologist. Since that time, I've had an ECHO of my heart (which checked out just fine; I believe Dr Riley said Perfect!) and I've been outfitted with an event monitor, should this occur again. Fun schtuff. I'm also scheduled for an appointment with a heart rhythm specialist. I never could have imagined this would be happening to me. Pretty crazy to say the least.
I feel like I'm in really good hands now. It's been reiterated that this is not a life threatening condition...but rather an annoyance & disruption to every day life. My heart occasionally miss-fires or hiccups. It's possible that one occurrence may counterbalance/correct the other. So maybe I'm all set. Who knows at this point. Dr Riley hopes it happens again so I can record it. I hope that it doesn't :) Either way, I know that I can go on and enjoy my life without restriction.
It's been a tiring few days for everyone around me. Hopefully things will quiet down for the 4th :) No weddings this weekend. Our neighbor's twin boys are being baptized on Saturday...so I'll be providing some complimentary photo coverage. Outside of that, a low key holiday weekend with Sara, Mady, my in-laws and rents. Steamed crabs are on the menu :)
I love you Sara. Thanks for taking care of me.
