Have a Heart…

Yeah, so I am already making with the jokes. Seriously, I will be relieved if this is for sure RF, because then I will know that I am NOT losing my mind and all the weird symptoms (fluttery hands, dropping shit, running into things, e.g.) and the painful symptoms (joint pain, fever) will (hopefully) go away.

Obviously, I am not so thrilled about the idea of rheumatic heart disease. I have my cardiologist appointment next Tuesday. I am hoping that they are able to rule out RHD and that they find NO ZERO ZILCH damage to my heartmeats and related whatnots. I just want to get everything wrapped up – two years of this shit is about enough.

Until then, however, I am a little wired, so I will either post not at all, or post crazy ranty stuff. So bear with me.

Cookies Will Make it All Better

    Good luck with the doctor business. I have had one thing after the other for the last 10 years. Luckily, nothing too serious yet. I’m 57.

    Thanks Mike. This has been going on for a while and I have been going nuts over the ‘what ifs’.

    My wife has a genetic heart issue that causes her heart to just start racing for no reason. She has a medication to take whenever it starts but she feels like she has just run a marathon by time her heart rate comes back down to normal.

    Hope everything went ok for you.
