|My heart doctor|
This afternoon I visited my cardiologist.
Good news and bad news.
The good news is that he is very easy on the eyes. No names here but I will post a photo. He is also very knowledgeable and comforting which helps me a lot since I am venturing into unknown territory for me. I was supposed to be the Healthy Brother, since both of my younger brothers have heart problems. Both of them are overweight and exercise very little. I'm not overweight (would like to lose that five pounds of inner tube around my middle though) and I get plenty of exercise. This wasn't supposed to happen to me.
So here is the bad news. I have an irregular heartbeat. They don't know why. They have set me up for a series of tests. Stop reading now if you don't want to go to sleep because this is boring. I'll try to make it as quick and painless as possible.
