Haven't been here in a while.  Was still having problems with AFib.  Back and forth to the doctor.  Kept changing the meds and increasing the meds.  Finally saw one of the other drs in the group.  He recommeded an Event Monitor.  It came on a Thursday and I put it on.  (For several weeks I kept almost blacking out.)  The next morning I got up, was in AFib and almost blacked out again.)  Went to ER by Squad.
Turned out that everytime I was almost blacking out, my heart was stopping to beat.  That morning it stopped for 3.5 seconds, they said.  They gave me a pacemaker.  Was in the hospital for ten days as I had other problems---low sodium, low potassium, etc.  Then I went to Rehab.  Am home now.  Nurse comes twice a week and Therapist three times a week.  When I went back to the Cardiologist l-1/2 weeks ago he said that I am still in AFib (I can tell that too) and when I go back to him on April 24th, if I am still in AFib, they will set me up to be converted (shocked).  I pray I don't have to go through that.  Please pray for me.  (BTW April 24 is our wedding anniversary.)

I do hope all is well and your problems resolve without shocking. 

I said it once before and I will say it again...this year sucks...I figure it has to be because of the 13.

Marie, all my best wishes for a speedy recovery.  I can identify with you somewhat as I also have A-fib, but mine is under control with medication, so far.  I will be thinking of you and praying for you!!!

Nikki P....ditto on your remark for the "13"!!!  More has happened to us this year than any year I can remember!  I'm doing fairly well; but hubby fell (again) and messed up his shoulder (again!).  Two doctors last week, and two this coming week.  I pray it gets better soon.

Darla M:  sorry to hear about your hubby.  I know what you mean about doctor visits.  Also I have the Visiting Nurse come twice a week and the Therapist three times a week.  Go to my family dr., the Cardiologist, the hematologist.  Also, my husband broke out in hives again from the shots I was giving him for the MS.  He had to go back to the dr. and get medication for that.  If it is not better, he will have to go back to the dr.  again.  It is never ending.

Will pray for you and your husband.  Please pray for us also.

Marie

I have talked to several people that have had "stuff" happen this year.  Maybe I am reading more into it than I should but I just can't ignore the 13.....Not to mention that technically there are 52 Friday the 13th's this year!
