heartBig Brother’s heart is acting up again.

His heart is fluttering again.

Cardiac episodes or atrial flutters.

His problems have always been in the lower chambers of his heart.

Now he’s having problems with the upper chambers.

His doctors have put him on blood thinners,

and in about two weeks he’ll have a catheter ablation.

This procedure corrects the problem about 95% of time.

Scary times ahead.

Seasoning is starting early this year…..

My life’s recipe is calling for something to remove the bite of all that cayenne pepper that was added on Friday!

So my Big Brother is going to be okay! Praise God & Baby Jesus! He spent the weekend in the hospital, but was released yesterday afternoon. The emergency room doctor’s read his echo cardiogram incorrectly (Thank God).  His heart is functioning at 40%.  While that’s not a great number, it’s a good number for him and it’s much better than 32%.  It turns out that he is having PVCs. He is hypersensitive to them because it’s basically the same feeling he gets if his heart is in an irregular rhythm and his defibrillator fires.  They’re changing his medications and will continue to monitor him.  This is something that he will continue to live with, and he will be okay. 

We are just so thankful that it’s not time for a heart transplant.
