Keeping you in the loop

Once again, I have been slack about blogging.   I was waiting to have good news to tell you.

My ablation for atrial fib was on April 26th....and for a week, I felt AMAZING.  I felt like ME, after not feeling myself for several months.  It was such a relief.  I wanted to do a TON of things.


I had to restrain myself, and try to commit to easing into all those things that I haven't 
been able to do.


Then last Thursday I went to a book sale with a friend, mid morning.  I came back, and suddenly felt really tired.  I kicked back on the sofa, and at 11am in the morning, fell fast asleep.  I woke up an hour and a half later, and I knew that I was in Atrial fib......yes, again.


Now, 5 days later, I am still in A fib.  My follow up appointment with my cardiologist is
on Friday morning, and I am hoping he has a plan to get me back into a normal heartbeat, 
because to be honest, I am tired, short of breath, and a little miserable.



That being said, do not think for one minute that I am giving up, lying down,  or rolling over.
Not happening.  
I will get through this.  I will have another ablation.  This will get fixed, one way or the other.

And until then, I will do whatever I can do.  I will keep weaving, and planning and designing, and trying to live my life the best I can.

Getting old can be tough, that's for sure.  Giving up isn't really an alternative.

Onward.

Ugh, I was hoping all was going well for you. You've got the right attitude though, and you've been through so much, you'll get through this too.

I'm so sorry that you're having difficulties still. Sure hope it can be brought under control soon. Now, I have to tell you that your weaving is stunning! The pictures in this post are proof of that.

So sorry you have to have another abulation. DH has his first scheduled 7/12 and I so hope it will be just one. He has been so discouraged as he has been in afib for several years. I really hope your next is soon and works!

Oh gosh! I hope this next one will work and stay working. What a wonderful week while it was. Hoping for many more!!
Love whatever you are making on your looms!! Just gorgeous! :)

We go on, one day at a time because what other choice is there? I'm sorry that victory was snatched from you but you know know that it's out there.

I read this the day you posted it, but on my phone, which for reasons I can't determine will no longer let me actually leave comments on blogs. (It appears to leave a comment, but that's just an illusion.) So today is the first day I'm sitting at my laptop to comment.

I know nothing about aFib or ablation, but none of it sounds like any fun at all. Sorry your treatment didn't stick the first time; hope it does the 2nd.

The new weaving, with your random wefts of interesting fiber, is a real joy!

Welcome to my world.
