In Agreement

I survived the echocardiogram and the exercise stress test. In fact, I passed with flying colors! You might be thinking, "great", "good news", etc. I was thinking, "no", "there IS something wrong with me".

God worked a miracle for me in the doctor's office yesterday. He allowed my heart to "do it's thing" while talking to the nurse. They immediately grabbed the EKG machine and wah-la! My proof was right there in black and white. This is what my print out looked like. And this is a normal EKG.

I impressed everyone in the office! I felt so special! And most of all so thankful that they were finally able to catch my problem and see for themselves.

I was right about my diagnosis. They are pretty sure it is Supraventricular Tychacardia.

So, what's next? On to another doctor for an electrophysiolgy study. The good news is, I was given some medication and it seems to be working.

More updates as they become available! (By the way, if you are reading this, how about commenting?) THANKS!

Julie -

I am leaving a comment that I am reading this just like I was told to! LOL. No girl. I always read your blogs....I am just one of those people who secretly lurk in the wings. Sorry to hear about your heart. I will for sure be praying about it!

Can't wait to see you tonight! Since Tucker and B are in the same grade I would love to see how your Bob Jones stuff is going.

Take care and see you soon! Lisa
