“You have arrhythmia,” said the doctor. “I have what?” I was not expecting that sobering news. During my annual checkup last week, I was told that I have an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). Another reason I cancelled my mammogram last Monday is because I was wearing a heart monitor but I didn’t want to mention it until I knew more. It scared me at first but after an EKG, wearing a heart monitor for a couple of days, followed by an echocardiogram and two visits to a cardiologist, I’m told it’s not life threatening and it’s just something you live with. Sometimes, if I stand up too fast, I may feel a bit light-headed. (at least I can blame it on that) 🙂 So anyway, things are back to normal and I feel just fine. Imagine having a mammogram with that heart monitor on and they get the results: “Miss Jones, your stress level on the 16th was dangerously high. You need to make a serious lifestyle change!” Not to worry, it’s all good and I feel fine.
