tick tock

Just so's you know. I was admitted into hospital last Tuesday via casualty with blood pressure approaching 200 and a completely arrhythmic heartbeat and rate in excess of 160 - ie a disfunctional heart. The technician was impressed, she seemed to think the pulse was a casualty record. I on the other hand was just terrified. I'm typing with the hand not attached to the drip at present. Keep you posted.

you're in my prayers, ghoti. I hope there is a simple, fixable explanation and you're back home with the boys in no time at all.

What??? Geeze, Fish...that is SCARY. The PK has something called afib and his heart goes nuts sometimes. First time it happened I took him to the emergency room and they hooked him up to the heart monitor and I saw how fast his heart was beating, I freaked. That's cary because you KNOW that's way too fast.

Anyway, have any idea if you'll have to be on meds to control it? Are you STILL in the hospital? What's up???

Oh my, Fish...
You're in thoughts and prayers. I've had some goofy shite with my heart, but not like that.

Keep us posted.
