Well, I have not had the best week. On Monday morning about 3 a.m. I had what turned out to be Afib. I had no idea what was happening, so I called 911 and took my first ambulance trip to the ER. They released me with new medicine and followup instructions.
I saw my regular doctor and then Friday had an echocardiogram. Turns out I have aortic stenosis and will need my valve replaced soon. I am feeling back to fine but the diagnosis allows no chance for this to cure itself...
You know..... I did not ever in my 66 years feel mortal until Friday morning when the doctor [who is a kind young man who brings his 16 year old Golden Retriever] told me he was sorry to tell me this. There is a newer process called TAVR to replace valves without open heart surgery... so....
I am hoping to get my spirit back up to par... My son is hopeful, and so am I... much worse news could have come my way... Since no lifestyle choices cause this issue, none can really improve it. However, better healthy habits are always a plus!
So on happier notes... we had a fun Mother's Day. Ready for another week. I am to wear a monitor bag for 30 days. Sounds just crummy to me. Lol... so much for ending on that funny note!
We did get a neat surprise. Instacart left us a huge order by mistake on our front porch instead of our tiny one! We were told to keep it, our order was replaced, and they gave us 10 dollars credit for our "trouble"! Hope the delivery person doesn't get fired!
Take care! This is Mom's baby dress!
