Though the visit to the hospital did have its positive side; what with running all of the heart tests and all and finding out that all is good, it does have its down side with the bills with me being uninsured and all.
I do seem to have a heart
palpitation thing, something I've had for years and years. Only minorly
annoying, they did catch it in the hospital, and decided that it's called
SVT. A rapid heart rate that comes and goes on occasion. The doctor
described that our hearts have an electrical line that pulses charge
down triggering the different beats that our heart makes. Apparently I
have one part that has an extra piece that occasionally draws one of the
charges off, causing kind of a misfire or something. He described it as
like a train following the tracks, and once in a while the switch gets
thrown diverting the train (pulse) to the other line. It can be treated
with medicine, though they can't predict which line it might shut down
(yikes!), or as an out patient they can take a thing in my groin, up the
artery, into the heart, and cauterize the offending little extra bit.
The doctor tried using the Joey Heatherton incident to explain it, but I
don't follow sports, nor the life of Heatherton. If it gets more
severe or more frequent I'll have to get it fixed. And apparently itís
a somewhat common thing.
So, in summary:
I have high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, and a heart SVT. Otherwise I guess I'm fine!
Anxiety issues have lessened a
bit, but I'm still working on them. I also just recently found out that
a fellow vendor and best friend of mine has lymphomic cancer, but he was
just told that three more Chemoís ought to do it, so thatís great
news as well!
Thanks to the very many of you all that sent me your well wishes! I wrote back to some of you, but please know that every one of your comments helped me out immensely!
As for your orders, those of you that have them placed with me, I am catching up! A bit slowly, but I am catching up!
Thanks again for all of your
support, and for your
continued interest in Heavy Leather Lore!
