I have to admit I do not have a musical bone in my body. my singing voice is not something I am apt to subject anyone else too. But, now there are occasions when I do think my voice is great. That would be when I am alone in the car driving on a highway far from listening ears. Then if a favourite song comes on the radio I just let loose and sing at the top of my lungs and sound wonderful. lol
I wa at the cardiologists office yesterday and found that while I may not have any music in my bones, my heart is full of it, huh who knew. My heart is not content with the plain old thumb, thump, thump thing. My heart is beating to its own tune. It is sort of like: beat, beat (skip one) beat, beat, beat (skip one), speed up for 10 fast beats, miss 2 slow down for next 3, with the strength of the beat varying between very strong to extremely weak. Hey, if I paid attention to it I might have a hit song being dictated to me. lol. A couple of new medications and tests planned to see if any sort of surgical interventions is warranted. That decision based both on the condition of the heart with my over all condition being taken into consideration.
People often as over all how am I feeling. Well that definitely can depend on the day but over all I am feeling well. Such a blessing to be free of that head ache.I just run out of breath and tire easily. I do look forward to my naps. My balance is way off but being aware of it you can sort of take precautions. Chest pains are more frequent, thankfully the good old nitro spray can deal with that. The doctors sometimes ask some questions that helps reality set in a bit I suppose. “At a slow moderate pace can you walk a block? Made me think, yes I could walk a block but that would be pushing myself and I would be huffing and buffing and need to sit down. “Can you walk up a flight of stairs?” Yes. Two flights? No.
It used to be chest pains only came with physical activity. I learned to some what deal with that by just taking every thing slow and easy and that would at least delay it. Now the pains can come even when I am laying down at rest. They have actually woken me up a couple of times through the night. Doctor said this is all just the natural progression.
I do realize I am such a very lucky man. Yes, I do have a number of serious medical conditions that have greatly reduced my physical limitations, I am still at a level of being able to enjoy life. For, what more could we ask
