Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Since last Thursday I've had two trips to the E R [emergency room] with a heart rate between 160-200 beats per minute.

After hours of testing, and the injection of adenosine, with increased medications, I'm again home.

More testing on Wednesday. Heart stress test, sonograms of lungs and heart and surrounding areas....along with numerous other tests like thyroid and blood ---

I'll be back to blogging again [or even getting online], hopefully, soon.


  1. Praying for you, how scary!!! Wish I could do something for you

  2. Oh, my!

    Please let us know how things are going with you!

    I have the say prob, and I'm only 33. Life goes on, with meds. Good sleep, less stress, good meals, a lot of fluids...all those help. And when there is stress, there are beta blockers...gotta love 'em. Much better than the ER, for sure!
