Thanks for your concern, your thoughts, your kind words, and your prayers. They worked! The power of positive thinking always helps too.
Yesterday, you read my health update: click HERE.
Well, today I am happy to report some good news in this saga with my heart.
I got to the hospital around 10:30 AM (early as my scheduled appointment was at 11:00 AM). I am always scared that I will not be able to find where to go in such a large institution.
After answering numerous questions which I had answered many, many times beforehand, I finally received an EKG and vitals testing by a couple nurses. The nurse was elated when she told me that it appeared that my heart was back in sinus rhythm which is a normal rhythm. Amen! My heart was not in atrial fibrillation. She informed me that she would contact my doctor who was not scheduled until 1:00 PM to perform the cardioversion and let him know the findings.
I waited and waited and waited. I was briefed by a resident doc. I waited. I was then briefed by another cardiologist. I waited some more. I just wanted to hear from my favorite doctor. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, Dr. Khatib then met with me to confirm the good news. He was extremely happy with my progress. I will continue my medications, and I will see him again after another ultrasound in a few weeks.
By the way, the results from my nuclear stress test came back showing absolutely no blockages, and my blood tests showed in their perfect ranges.
I am elated and only hope that I will continue to live a more healthy lifestyle --- eating better and more exercise. I am down 10-12 lbs. from the year’s start, and that’s a great thing.
A good update, y’all!
