Cardiac excitement...

So on Sunday I was getting off to sleep around 11am, and my heart started racing. I was too tired to care, so I crashed anyway. Woke up with a start around 3pm, and after tending a few necessities, I called the doctor's office. He said to go to the ER, but I waited for my shrink to visit, and she talked me into going, despite the fact that I had a visitor coming in at 6pm. Reported racing heartbeat to the staff...got a lot of attention very very quickly. They injected me with a drug to make it go away, and it made me feel icky, but got the job done. I was admitted to be observed, and proceeded to getting an echocardiogram yesterday, then am getting a (chemical) stress test tomorrow...er...later today. *wry grin* Doing reasonably ok, aside from aggravated hip pain from waiting on an uncomfortable stretcher. :P Morphine is good, though! :-) Hopefully, if the stress test is normal, they will send me home. :-)

Lawrence Memorial Hospital, West 3, room 325B if you want to visit in the morning.
