Yet another medical update

I guess it's time for another medical update, and this time I'm smiling while typing this post. A little more than a week ago I went back to my doctor to have another EKG of my heart to see if I could have something help calm my heart down a little. Since my heart rhythm was fine, I got a prescription of some mild ß-blockers. I'm no fan of medication, and the list of side effects looked pretty scary to me, but I decided it would be nice to have a backup solution in those cases where my heart beat exceeds 130 beats per minute. And apparently the ß-blockers helped me immensely, just by sitting in a drawer! No, but seriously.. I never got the chance to try them out, and don't misunderstand me, I'm grateful for every day I have with a normal heart beat.

So the last week or so I've felt pretty much like I used to before I started experiencing my own private little hell back in the end of October. I'm still scheduled for an MRI in the middle av May to find out more about the scarring, and I'm waiting for an appointment for another ultra sound of my heart. I occasionally still feel a little dizzy and nauseous, but it's not nearly as bad as it was. I also still have a few minor struggles, but it's nothing I won't be able to work through. Funny.. just when I was about to give up on the hope of ever feeling like myself again, something happened and I'm suddenly able to see a light at the end of the tunnel I thought would never end.

For the first time in many months, life feels good!
