Yesterday Mattered

Yesterday the Pres had a follow-up appointment with his Cardiologist.


Yesterday was twelve days after his second Electric Cardioversion, which, if you remember, was successful in gaining a normal heartbeat eliminating the AFib.


Yesterday was a busy day for us even before his appointment.


Yesterday, the Pres still had a regular heartbeat...the AFib did not return over the twelve days. We were elated!


"Time for the next step," the Cardiologist said smiling. Scheduling an Echocardiogram to get the full picture of the Pres' heart, we return to the doctor in a few weeks, who will review the results with us. IF his heart has "healed" enough, then the next step is to meet with the surgeon who will "tell us the good, the bad and the ugly" about open heart surgery and valve replacement.

Yesterday was wonderful!

Yesterday we celebrated.

That must have been quite a relief.

That is good news. So far...so good! Just take it one day at a time. Live in the moment and try not to let your mind start racing ahead with all the "what ifs." I speak from experience. :) One more piece of advice...don't google symptoms, medical terms, etc. Sooner or later it will drive you crazy.

Great!! I hope the echo results are very good.

I'm glad to hear it was good news. Here's to his heart mending quickly so he can get the surgery over and you can both stop worrying.

I know it all takes time - but things are moving the right way and progress is being made.

Warm hugs and love to you both.

i remember those heart pieces - we had them in our classes as a kid. it was cool being about to see how our parts work(ed) & what they look like. a better perspective for our minds. ( :

this is good news, thanks for letting us know. Hope it heals quickly and you can get to the surgeon to find out what where when how.

i found out last night, my brother who has AFIB is having surgery this morning, the ablation thing where they run wires up through the groin and cauterize places in the heart....

Sorry I missed not knowing something happened, but I'm happy to know that he is doing good. My dad had to have a pig valve and a pacemaker put in the summer before last. He's doing really good now.
