Almost. He had them do an EKG before our appointment; and they finally captured my heart pausing! Finally! The Doc thinks I might have â€œAfibâ€ (meaning my heart occasionally doesnâ€™t beat the way it should) and sometime in my past (no telling when) I might have had a heart attack. Wants me to have a couple of more tests before putting me on medication to slow my heart rate. Other than that everything seems okay. Even my blood pressure is not bad for a guy my age. The only real â€œworryâ€ he has if my â€œgoodâ€ Cholesterol isnâ€™t as high as heâ€™d like it.
So, Iâ€™m going to get an echo-cardiogram and wear one of those heart monitors for a day or two. Weâ€™ll go from there. Oh, I also have kidney disease; so he may put me on medication to help with that. My kidneys arenâ€™t getting rid of some of the crap theyâ€™re supposed to. Boils down to Iâ€™m Getting Old really.
So all that pretty much shot my day. I was so hungry on the way home that I stopped and got one of DQâ€™s $5 lunches. It was good! Ought not to get hungry again until about bedtime. Also stopped at the Vape Shop.
Pretty cloudy out and kind of cool. Supposed to rain tonight. And itâ€™s supposed to rain this Friday & Saturday; right in the middle of Field Day. Of course.
