We left for Tucson this morning at about 8 am for an appointment at the heart doctor for Hubby. During his hip replacement, he had some episodes of Atrial Fibrillation (rapid heartbeat that can, in extreme & prolonged situations, create pools of blood clots), and has had some of those experiences since. The problem with that is that it can lead to stroke, so it definitely (Simply Heather, ha!) needs to get checked out.
It was a soupy, soggy, rainy day in Tucson, with low lying clouds and humidity in the 54% range. In other words...big hair day for me. Ha! I'd post a picture, but really, it is not a pretty sight! :)
When we had the Echo Cardiogram done today, we were blown away! It was beyond our thoughts about what could be seen through goo & wire!!! Not to mention the awesome woman that performed the test. She explained what we were looking at, what direction it was looking towards, and what she was measuring and looking for. I swear, what we saw on that screen was God's art. Truly.
When you think about art, it can be the most beautiful thing you've ever seen in your life, but unless it has exposure you would never know about it. That is how I felt seeing this today. God's art gets exposure. 3D echos of the heart, and to be honest, I thought about what beautiful fabric it would make!!!
As it turns out, Hubby's heart is in pretty darn good shape. His chambers were a little large, but not in the "5" measurement that would put him in danger of stroke, although at a "4", he was put on a mild prescription to keep everything on an even keel.
We LOVE his heart doctor!!! He is totally NOT into the whole "I am king" doctor syndrome, but a friendly, down to earth, kind of guy that puts you totally at ease.
And we were...totally at ease!
