Weekly update here!! Not much new here which is kind of good. I am still fairly stable and waiting waiting waiting. Dane worked a full week at the Courage Center and is really enjoying it, however, that leaves me home alone all day. Most of the time I actually enjoy the peace and quiet. I can move at my own pace and slowley do small projects around the house. However, some days when I am either really feeling bad or have doc appointments I miss having Dane with me.
This week I went to cardio rehab on Wed and they noticed that I was going in and out of arrythmias. This continued until Thursday and by that time I was in a steady atrial flutter. Atrial flutter is actually the least harmful from all the different arrytmias in that it is a regular extra beat from the top chamber. This last flutter lasted for about a day and 1/2 and wasn’t very fast so while I felt kind of crummy I didn’t need to go to the hospital. I am out of the flutter now and was able to sit and visit with an old high school friend most of day on Friday (Thank you Lasha!!!). Today Dane and I are going to head to one of my co-worker’s wedding (Congrats Jake!!). I also went on my own to transplant support group on Thursday. It is always very energizing to go there. I see all of these wonderful people who have been through so much and who are there to help me through my journey. I also get to connect with other people waiting for hearts. It helps very much to know that my feelings are normal and all a part of the process.
This next week Dane is working all week again. I will do my usual, cardio rehab, doc apts, support group, and home care nurse. Here’s to hoping I get my call soon!! We had a large tree branch fall on our house on a day that wasn’t windy, rainy, and it was a live tree. I figure if we are “lucky” enough to have that happen my heart may be coming soon?
Be good everyone!
