Deo Gratias August 17, 2012

Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin.

Thanks to all for your many prayers and well wishes.  I can feel the effects of the many prayers being offered.  I am really in pretty good shape now, no major after effects although I’d say my heart still feels a bit jumpy.  What I had was an episode of an arrhythmia – their not fully sure if it was supraventricular tachycardia or atrial fibrillation.  Unfortunately, there was no EKG of the worst part of the event – the very beginning, the first 3 or 4 minutes when my heart was just beating crazy irregularly.  Man, it was nuts.  I kinda freaked out, because it was just totally irregular.

Anyway, they tried a couple things to get my heart to break out of the arrhythmia, and then gave me a couple doses of a medicine that stopped my heart briefly and was very unpleasant to go through.  The second time, it worked.  No major problems since then, Deo Gratias.  I’ve got to say, I did not feel prepared to meet my Lord yesterday, nor do I want to leave my wife and kids without a husband and father just yet.  I started calming down a bit when I started saying Hail Mary’s.

So, blogging may be light for a while.  I actually came into work this morning sort of at my wife’s behest, but they’re telling me not to come back until I have a formal doctor’s release.

Anyhoo, I’m pretty much back to normal, but I surely appreciate your prayers and well-wishes.
