I was very tired this morning. Mom woke me very early as she was concerned I was ok. After eating I felt better. Overall felt good. Thank you for asking.

Misery loves company. My DW's injury is not life-threatening, but...
Last week, she managed to twist her knee in the surf off Marco Island.
No breaks, but she's using a brace, crutches, and keeping it iced.
Tuesday, she sees an Orthopedist.

Hmmm. Mayo Clinic lists fast heart rate as a side effect. Might be uncommon, but It’s listed. DH in medical field usually Says look at most logical thing-you took the meds an hour earlier and developed weird symptoms-good chance it’s the med.
I had a systemic reaction to cipro-my dr completely discounted it. Got a new dr who realized I wasn’t making stuff up. I can’t take certain meds either. Glad you’re better.

Panani, you need to continue being your own health advocate. We know our symptoms and bodies better than any one. Glad you went to get checked out and are safely home!

So sorry to read these new developments. I'm glad to know everything is back on course and you received immediate care and interventions. Choose your own dates, nothing is written in stone. You have to do what's best for you. I remember selling my house and the seller asked for me to move the closing date up so she could be in the home for her birthday. It was not possible for me to do so with all my plans made, flights, dog, new country etc so I said no and kept the original date I set. Deep breaths ...you're at the final stretch.

Ugh. Just what you didn't need. Please take your time and don't let the stress allow the health issues to creep back in.
Hope all of the dates/closing/mortgage stuff works out, too...

And, once you move, I am *sure* you will quickly make friends that would take you to the ER, or stay in your guest room to watch out for you if you need it.

In this time of COVID when many are staying close to home, we've talked more to our neighbors than we have in the 20+ years that we've lived here. We see them walking in the street or working in their yards. It turns out that they're actually quite friendly. The four in closest proximity offered their assistance after my DW's injury. I thought, "How neighborly."

I finally got good dates for my walk thru and closing date 9/21 and 9/25. Closing might even be sooner. I actually wanted to go down this Saturday but realize taking it easy for awhile after my medical ordeal would be wise. I also locked in my mortgage rates 2.625%, amazed how low. Also today went and got 12 timeshare deeds notarized and ready for FedEx tomorrow.

The cardiologist office called me this morning, actually woke me at 8:30. They wanted to see me within 30 days. I asked if they have any cancellation this week and am going in at 10 am tomorrow morning and right after seeing the cardiologist will see my regular doctor. As far as I am concerned the sooner the better, why wait. Let them torture me with tests and let’s deal with whatever has to be dealt with. I still believe the medicine caused it all but now the question is did any other damage occur?

Until this afternoon I was still so tired. This morning I did the slowest 1/2 mile walk I ever did and it was an effort. By this afternoon it was easy to do a mile. Hoping I wake up feeling as good as I did this afternoon.

Today I saw the cardiologist. Bottom line is I was born with an extra path in my heart that can cause the erratic and high beat per minutes problem I experienced on Saturday. He told me it might never happen again, could happen today, 5 years from now, etc. Wait and see is what needs to happen. If it does continue there are beta blockers or an heart ablation procedure that can shut down the extra path. He does not believe the antibiotic caused it or at least from a medical standpoint it shouldn’t. He also feels this condition is not life threatening. It sure feels like it while it is happening.



Off to my internist I went down the hall. She decided to take thyroid tests as that can cause this problem. She also said on Saturday my white blood count was slightly elevated and since my temperature has been running between 98.1 and 99 I possibly have a virus. I normally run about 97. She also decided to send me for a Covid test tomorrow afternoon just to rule it out. Her personal opinion is the antibiotic could have caused my problem as over the years she has seen reactions with me no one else gets. Her opinion if the condition comes back and continues to get the procedure, she feels betas would exhaust me.



During all this I started sweating, feeling extremely hot, kind of feeling like I was having a panic attack. Luckily the doc was there and listened to my heart and all was good. I actually went into a room myself took my mask off to do deep breathing with an ice pack on me. It took about 10 minutes to pass and I took my blood test.



I must admit I feel nervous about not knowing if this will ever happen again. The unknown sucks. It can happen anywhere, I can only imagine if it happens when I am on a plane or overnight train. Having to go alone to an emergency room in a town I am unfamiliar with and then figuring out where to stay , the thought is overwhelming. It is kind of like an eye condition I have, never knowing when it can bleed but at least I have 24 hours to see a doctor, this would be more immediate. Will just have to adjust to what will be will be. I am grateful at least there are treatment options.


The good news is closing on my current home signing over the house over to my other half is tomorrow. He already transferred the money to the lawyers office.


The Mortgage company called me today. They only need a few more things, one current bank statement, my settlement statement with proof of funds on my current home and a homeowners insurance policy. Was too exhausted today but hopefully will get all done by Friday morning.


I ordered some stools for the kitchen counter area. I went the cheap way and spent a total $240 for three stools from Wayfair. My current home has Frontgate stools but it won’t match my decor so I am leaving them for him. The new stools came and he was nice and put them together. I am shocked how nice they are for the money. The quality surpassed my expectations.

Those stools look great!
I'm grateful that you were referring to real stools and not stool samples.

Ah, the joys of real estate closings...
We bought a house that had two addresses... one for 911, and another for mail.
It wasn't disclosed until closing which was delayed for hours. The post office won.

DW and I have a notice, on a sticker on some old library card, with doctors' names and numbers, meds being taken, and "no allergies."

If I were you, I'd put a similar sticker or note in my wallet, next to my medical insurance card, with the cardiologist's name and number, the name of the condition, and what the successful intervention was. That could help in the case of the unexpected problem away from home.

First off, love the stools! There really is no need to spend a ton of money on stools. In our former home I bought ours at Walmart.com and they were perfect. The buyers of our home even purchased them from us.

Second, glad your medical issues were addressed and you are ok. Try not to worry about it too much. Anything can happen to any of us at any time.

Third- happy to hear about the closing on your current house!

All falling into place!

Love the barstools.

I should have thought of thyroid issues with your symptoms. Rapid heartbeat, faint, weakness, etc., all symptoms of Graves' Disease. I no longer have a functioning thyroid for that reason. The doc zapped it with radioactive iodine. That was just a freaky experience.

My thyroid test came back ok. Not that that means much in my family. My mom, sister and niece all experienced low thyroid symptoms for years yet tested negative. They are all on thyroid medication now.

If it does continue there are beta blockers or an heart ablation procedure that can shut down the extra path.
If this is the same ablation procedure used for A-fib, research it carefully. My Cardiologist wanted to perform one on me about 6 or 7 years ago. My research at the time revealed that it was effective only about 50% or the time and that when effective lasted less than 3 years 50% of the time. I chose not to have it done. I hasten to add that I am talking 6 or 7 years ago and that today's procedure my produce better results...
