After a frenzied two weeks of political (I resigned) and medical activities, I decided to post an alert I'm still around.

I will be spending about a week at the Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock to hopefully regain  control of atrial fibrillation, short is A-Fib, where a special oral tablet will carefully be subjected to titration for my body and circumstances.

If things go as expected, I am given 2 tablets a day and I can read, sleep, whatever I want while being evaluated. I am sure evaluated means wires hanging out of you in ever conceivable manner.

However, I was promised I may be able to take less meds which is comforting, too, at least as the ones related to heart and blood pressure.

So maybe I will be able to catch up on reading your blogs!! And my Kindle.

We have two laptops so HUSBAND gets the one that works the best at the nearby motel. Luckie gets the one that is near dead. HAH HAH.

This sounds like good news. I certainly hope you'll find great improvement with this treatment. I'll be interested in hearing more about it.

Glad to hear from you. Good luck on this next phase.

Good to hear from you but wires coming out of every crevice doesn't sound like fun. I am so glad you have your Kindle, they are so light that reading in bed is easy.
Hope they can find a way to lower your meds and improve your condition. Thanks for the update, and keep us informed.

I will be praying that this procedure will lead to better days ahead. At least you'll get to relax a few days and do some great reading! You take care and know that many are thinking of you and praying for a good outcome.

Take advantage of the chance to have your feet up---and to get used to Kindle-reading.

Wishing you comfort during, and good results from, your stay at Arkansas Heart Hospital. Enjoy your Kindle, even if you don't/can't enjoy much else.

Hugs, P

Hope your stay in the hospital is as pleasant as a hospital stay can be and that the new treatment will be an improvement for you. Enjoy your Kindle and laptop. I'll be thinking about you.

I hope you're managing to relax in spite of those wires.

And that you get sorted and an improvement in life quality.

Glad to hear your still out there! Life gets hectic sometimes, doesn't it?
I hope your trial of the new med is successful.
Thanks for the visit; I was surprised how well that shot worked. And you're right, not many do work without significant tweaking!
