You're All Heart

I've been absent for awhile for a very good reason.
For many years I have had weird arrhythmia and high blood pressure. I've been taking medication for is for decades already.

WELL, a little over a week ago I started having PVCs, or throwing PVCs as the medical pros say it. A condition where my Premature Ventricular Contractions kind of go against the normal pumping of my heart making me feel very light-headed and leaving me with a feeling of near-passing-out.

SO, with excellent response from my GP and my new cardiologist, I have undergone many cardiovascular/heart tests this week. Today I had a cardio cath, angiography, the procedure where they take a monitor and look inside of the chambers and arteries of the heart to find blockage.

I fully expected high percentages of blockage and I fully expected the need for a stent.

But guess what?!
I am blocked less than 10%, better than most people!
There was absolutely nothing going on there!
NO imminent heart attack, NO heart disease!!!!!!!!

With my lovely genetics I thought for certain that I was entering a very unhealthy downward slide.  But I'm not!

I still don't know what is causing the passing out sensation, but for now, I am honestly celebrating the knowledge of such healthy arteries!

YAY Medical Science!!!!


  1. I've missed your posts. Glad to hear you are taking care of yourself and that you have healthly arteries Hopefully, the "passing out sensation" will pass.

  2. That must be a relief! I hope you find the causes of what's going on. Thought I must ask... did you turn this in to a homeschool lesson with your children? Or am I the only one that sticks my x-rays and scans on the windows of my house to show the kids stuff! :P
