Happy birthday to wolfette!
Hello to new readers kgb1138 and moonnfreak!
Way exhausted. Nauseous. Chest pain, shortness of breath. These things are more or less constant.
Special note re: heart
Don't treat last night like a diagnosis; that's docorion listening to raw data. Keep in mind that
a) there are things the machine can pick up that he couldn't hear,
b) he's not a cardiologist, and
c) that was not the most extreme of my palpitations! That was one of the mid-range ones.
I trust him, but I'm not writing this all off completely yet; we're not done. (C) is, of course, the most important of the above. He heard PVCs, he heard possible (probable; he's heard a lot of heart monitors in his day) supraventricular tachycardia, but he has not heard the thing where my heart is hammering out of my chest or the thing where it feels like sneakers in the dryer. Which is Important.
And frankly, we think he's the reason he didn't hear it - that a lot of it may be brought on by stress, and I'm simply not as stressed when he's here. We'll see what happens today, and the rest of this week.
Speaking of DocOrion
He has returned to Boston, and lo, I am sad.
This would be a lot easier if I just knew when I was going.
