I am amazed...

that a doctor can go into your leg and end up in your heart!  Isn't that just the coolest thing?

I had my EP study done yesterday.  So far so good!  Thank you all for your comments, texts, and prayers.  I truly felt the prayers.

I am recovering today, and I feel great.  I am not allowed to bend over today because I may risk bleeding from the vein in my groin that they used to access my heart, but otherwise I can function normally.

I will give you the play by play on another entry.  Love you all!

Update Time!

Just a quick update on my heart condition...

Today I had an appointement with a "Heart Electrician" as he amusingly called himself!  A Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist to be exact.  (By the way...wouldn't you love to tell people that your child is going to college to become a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist?  I would!) ANYWHO....

My diagnosis still stands at Supraventricular Tachycardia.  The doctor was very "impressed" with my chart.  Not to say that he was glad I have a problem, but he found it interesting to see all the electrical activity taking place.  Basically, I have a short circuit.  (I knew there was something wrong with me!) Where normally the heart has a "wire" that runs from the top chamber to the bottom chamber, I have an extra pathway that is telling my heart to beat too many times. 

He would prefer that I fix the problem instead of being on medication forever.  Mostly because I am young and if I take medicine forever...the problem could eventually come back when I am older.  To fix the problem I will have a catheter placed in my leg which will run all the way to my heart.  They will explore the problem area and then cauterize or freeze the "extra wire".

Of course there are different scenarios and risks involved.  I won't explain here unless something does happen.  Mainly because you are probably already bored out of your mind!

Please keep me in your prayers.  I will be a Crawford W. Long on Thursday.  The procedure begins around 12:30 p.m.  I am trusting that the Lord will take care of me and the doctors and staff.  I am so thankful that the Lord is revealing this issue so that I can get it fixed.  Thank you all for your support, prayers and love!
