All Is Well

The incredible news of yesterday was no blockages!!!
The doc said the arterties were “clear as the day you were born,” and the nurse called them “textbook.”

Here’s the video…


So, that means some kind of electrical problem with “extra” beats in between the regular cycle of beats.
The doc is not worried about it for now, and even indicated that there might be nothing to do about it for now. I will see him in a few weeks to discuss.

So, we’ll see how this unfolds.

A little rest over the next few days….and lots of prayers of gratitude.

Every now and then, I get reminded of two blessings…
a) That Facebook can actually be kinda cool, and
b) That I have amazing friends.

Friends: I can’t tell you how powerful it was to have your prayers, thoughts, jokes with me yesterday while I had my heart procedure.
Stopping to read FB comments now and then was….AWESOME.

The sense of prayer, and happy thoughts, was overwhelming. Thank you. Sincerely.
