Little scare.

Little scare.


Today when I woke up I felt lightheaded and dizzy, my heart was racing and fluttering, and I was short of breath. I went to an urgent-care facility and they hooked me up to an EKG. They told me that I was experiencing some arythmia. My blood pressure was around 90 / 40 and my pulse was very erradic. They sent me, via ambulance to a nearby hospital. There I had x-rays taken, blood tests, and hooked me up to another EKG. I was seen by a cardiologist and he informed me that I had atrial fibrillation. I got the following info off the web:

Atrial fibrillation is a disorder found in about 2.2 million Americans. In it the heart’s two small upper chambers (the atria) quiver instead of beating effectively. Blood isn’t pumped completely out of them, so it may pool and clot. If a piece of a blood clot in the atria leaves the heart and becomes lodged in an artery in the brain, a stroke results. About 15 percent of strokes occur in people with atrial fibrillation.

Anyway, the cardiologist isn’t sure yet what is causing my AF but he wants to monitor me closely and do further tests. For now, he put me on coumadin, a blood thinner and metoprolol, a beta blocker used to slow down rapid heart rate associated with AF. He said that I shouldn’t be worried and that I can still live to very old age with AF. He said he wants me to stay off work a few days and relax. I asked if I could just pass medicine at my nursing home and he said he doesn’t want me to work at all for at least 48 hours if not more. This will be hard on us because I may not be able to get sick pay and now we will have more bills to pay.

Please keep us in your prayers and we will keep you updated as we find out more information.

God bless!

    I laid in ICU for 48 hours in October when my heart acted up, yet again. I have both arythmia and frequent palpitations and Mitral Valve Prolapse, and have had endocarditis, which is a horrific bacterial infection on the heart that takes forever to get rid of. It all runs in the family. I vividly remember how scary this is, and will certainly be praying for you all.

    I DX’ ed ( Diagnosed ) you right too when I read the post earlier but I did not want to scare Jenn and say anything. Your doctor has got you on the right course. My family members have this and I can tell you they are all fine! Get the rest you need and remember you are all covered in prayers. God will provide!!

    I really hope this AF stuff just goes away and never returns. Is Jerry okay too? Wow I cannot believe you all had two urgent care eposides so close together. I hope all is well. Terri is a local story here in Florida and my heart aches for the family of Terri. The husband seems so calious and non emotional about it. I don’t understand why he doesn’t give rights to her Mom and Dad who brought her in this world. It’s a very painful situation. At least they are protesting in front of the husband’s house to let him know it’s wrong what he’s doing. You just cannot erase a life like that and to starve to death is horrible. Hope all is well for you two try not to stress too much and lotsa prayers…
    Hugs JenD
