Heart Scare

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Last month I had a scare with my heart. Due to scar tissue from previous surgeries getting in the way of the electrical current of my heart my heart got to beatng WAY to fast. It was 234 beats a minute. After trying different meds to get it slowed down and nothing working the dr. had me sedated and then shocked my heart to reset it! It worked and I am so thankful. Nothing iike almost not making it to give ya a new appreciation for each day. The surgeon went in and removed the scar tissue then cauderized it so I won't get more. Then they put in a defibrilator/pacemaker. I had my one month follow up with my cardiologist yesterday and he said everythng looked good. He stressed that nohing I did caused the problem.

Anyway, it kinda shifted my attitude about weight loss. While I do want to weigh in weekly I want my focus to be less on failures of nnt losing enough but instead on feeing good so I can fully enjoy each day God gives me.
