To help, they gave me a drug called the "drug of impending doom". This drug stops the heart and restarts it again so that the normal pacemaker has a chance to reset itself. I'll never forget the looks on their faces as they anxiously waited to see if my heart would restart.
Once things were settled and I was able to be moved, they took me to the hospital. There was concern that my heart may have been damaged as my heart was pounding for over 3 hours. Blood was drawn and tests were done.
I'm now awaiting an appointment with a cardiologist who I'm hoping will be able to give me some treatment options. The doctors told me this is called SVT Supraventricular Tachycardia and is caused by an over firing of electrical stimulation to my heart by a node that by-passes my normal pacemaker. There are a few options for treatment but it will depend on the doctor and confirmation of diagnosis.
I've been resting a lot since I've come home and haven't been here since I had to stop with the postings on Sunday to go. I feel really stupid now because I wouldn't leave till my "work" was done. As much I love doing this site each day and the Fb page too, I need to focus on me and my heart right now. I will post as I'm feeling better and hopefully back into the full swing of things soon.
Thank you for your understanding and patience and I hope it won't be long.
Take good care of you eh?
