Retired electrical engineer: suffer from Atrial Fibrillation and have undergone open heart surgery for repair of mitral valve and for a mini-maze procedure. Have had four electrocardioversions and two cardio catheterizations. Currently "living" with AFib.
Jerry -- does your pulse oximeter give you a good readout? I am finding it difficult to get a readout. I may be because my heart rate is so high during this afib episode. It has bounced around between 30 (yikes!) and 150-180. It takes forever and I don't trust that I'm getting a good reading. I am off to see the wizard and be cardioverted (I hope successfully) one more time. I am going back on the Norpace CR and looking into an ablation at Ohio State University -- apparently they are doing the FIRM procedure developed by Dr. Narayan in California. Hope this finds you well. It is getting hot here again, altho we had snow on Mother's Day:P
Just a quick note to say hi! i've been reading your posts, jerry, about your wife. I will pray for you both. She sounds like she has such a positive outlook and you have been such a good supporter. Keep strong!
Just a quick note to say hi!
Hi Jerry - I was reading the posts regarding your wife's lung nodules. I noticed you mentioned HMC. I live in Hunterdon County and am always at or in the hospital.
Hope that you and your wife are doing ok.
Just a quick note to say hi! Not sure if I told you I am in Southern California originally from New Jersey. Glad to hear your wife is doing well with the treatments she is receiving. How is your week going? Julie
