Dying Man’s Daily Journal – AFib

Had my appointment with the Hear Failure Clinic yesterday. Timing was good. My heart has gone into Atrial Fibrulation. Simply put, the electrical wiring in my heart is short circuiting. Heart rate and rythem totally out of wack. It is skipping beats, very irregular and seems to think it is in a race of some sort. While at rest it is beating in the range of 120-130 beats per minute. This could well account for the consistent chest discomfort I have been feeling. Not being angina pain from the blockages as thought. Medication change, will hopefully deal with it. Will be monitored weekly as new med kicks in. Dosage may need tinkering.

MRI, later today for brain tumour. With MRI tumour they see easily, the brain they sometimes have to really search for.

    Mwah hahahargh! Loved the brain scan joke. My Dad has atrial affribilation and I can confirm that yes, they can med it well. I hope they sort you out soon. Take care you.

    Lots of love


    Morning my friend. Glad to hear your Dad is doing well. It is encouraging they have identified what it is that has had me feeling so out of sorts this past while.
    When you go to the Hear Failure Clinic you don’t always see the same cardiologist each time. This visit open heart surgery was brought back on the table as a possible option for the artery that is 100% blocked.
    All are very good at the clinic, I am in good hands.

    No wonder you were feeling so worn out, with your heart doing the merengue.

    It’s still easy to see your sense of humor. 🙂

    Hi Jennie, nice to hear from you. This certainly does explain a lot of my current symptoms. It is nice when they can identify the problem as then they can start to treat it specifically.
    How are you my friend

    Your humor is intact despite a runaway heart!

    Hey there my friend, often humour is the best way to deal with life

    *chuckling* Gotta love that the sense of humour is still there even with the lack of brain. LOL. OH, ya know how the Big Guy works, He carries you when you don’t have a clue that’s what’s happening. I thank Him for that. Fingers crossed that the med adjustments are simple and effective! Relief from that constant tiredness would be a welcomed thing, no doubt.

    He has carried me a lot this past while, I know that and am very grateful
