How’s that for a title???
So, first of all, today my little blog is 6 months old. 🙂 Woo Hoo! So, “Happy Birthday Ramblings”. How time flies when you’re having fun, right?
So, I’ve decided it’s time for some ‘tweaking’. I’ve been trying to post twice a week and that has become a chore. I wanted this to be fun, not work – so I’m cutting back to a weekly schedule with extras during the week as time/energy permits.
Now for ‘life events’…. If you keep up here, you may remember that I fainted and fell back in October. None of the tests showed anything until the Holter monitor – which I wore for 48 hours and felt no different at all. I thought it was a waste of time. However, it did show irregularities with my heart and the Cardiologist that I’ve seen feels that’s what caused the fainting episode.
Paroxysmal Supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) – and for all you non-medical people out there – that’s fancy words for “an abnormally rapid heart rythym arising from electrical activity in the upper part of the heart”. And if you are medical – just yell at me if I’ve got it wrong. Hopefully in this case it can be managed by meds, which I am already on. A visit to a Cardiologist in a couple of weeks who specializes in this problem will tell me more.
So, I basically have a ‘short circuit’ in my heart. Could be a lot worse and I have MUCH to be thankful for!
