Well, tomorrow is the electrophysiology Study and probably an ablation for my son. He has tachycardia which is an arrhythmia of the heart. We had hoped to control it by medicines, but his episodes are more like a seizure and very hard on him. He has been in ER twice since this started. Tomorrow we will leave the house at 4AM to be at the hospital by 5AM. His procedure won't start til 7:30AM but he will be the first for his doctor for the day.
If everything goes well, even with an ablation, he should be able to come home by the end of the day. With any luck this procedure will fix his problem. It looks like the Marines will not want him any longer even it this procedure fixes the problem. He is very upset but there is nothing he can do and I do understand why they wouldn't want him since everything they do is so physical.
I just want to get through tomorrow without any problems and I want to finally see him healthy again. It has been a long time before we figured out what the problem really was.
Please say a prayer for us! Thanks Beth
