Good News Kinda

Well I went to the heart specialist today, and the good news is that what I have isn't going to kill me. It's definitely not life threatening, he thinks its something called tachycardia which is when the heart beats too fast (duh) and is usually caused by a chemical imbalance. For instance, if your iron level is too low( iron carries the oxygen to your cells) your heart will beat harder to make up for the lack of oxygen in the blood. Cells need oxygen, there isn't enough iron in your blood to give them all what they need, and so to make up for that lack (because the cells are still demanding oxygen) the heart beats harder so the cells get their oxygen. Down side to that is that I need to wear something called ''an event monitor'' for a month so that when I have another episode, I can record it and transmit it to the doctor and he can have a look at what is going on during the rapid heart rate. *blah*

So physically I am likely doing better, spiritually I am definitely in a pit. Please those of you who have prayed for me, thank you so much, it means so much. And those that would like to continue, you have my thanks and my tears at this time. Really means worlds to me that you are carrying me in prayer.

I'll keep you in prayer as well. Glad to hear the "kinda" good news. My heart tends to skip beats frequently-nothing serious, but not comfortable.

:-) I really appreciate that. Skipping beats doesn't sound fun either. I know that the nurses told me that your heart can skip beats when you

and for various other reasons not know to science. ;) So much fun.
