Hi Jeff! I found you on here too :) I am also on your Skipping Hearts, Danirae :)

I have a question, I see at one time your PVCs jumped to thousands a day and you still were not on Meds?  What did you do to help control them?  I am the "you" with less then 100 per day right now. And they scare the crap out of me.... I think what scares me more is I am waiting for them to turn into something so much worse. :(

Just a quick note to say hi!  I am also a skipper, have been for many years, and today I'm having a really bad day.  After eating seems to be a problem with me lately but dr is referring me to a cardiologist soon.  They told me also that they are pvcs ....they go like this......normal beating, then pause, then one hard beat.  But not only am I getting them, I started getting really fast beats the odd time that last only about 5 seconds but they scare the heck out of me.  Anyway....just wanted to say and I know what you mean about thousands of them ....I have gotten that many too.

I'm a little worried about Momto3. You were going to interview her. I got a note or two from her about that. But now she hasn't posted for quite a long time. Have you been in touch with her? Is she OK? I did send her a note last week asking. No news here.  irene

Thank You can not even begin to express my appreciation Jeff. To finally put my very anxious and terrified mind at ease is to heal an open wound that has been causing me much pain... and to finally be able to just STOP and take a deep re-assuring breathe.How could you possibly thank someone for that?! Please just know how grateful I am. It's so great to know that there are still people out there who are concerned about helping others. I may have to take you up on the offer for needing to talk sometime. And you are definitely correct. I no longer think of the outcomes of things to benefit myself as much as I do my husband and daughter. They mean the world to me!!! Thank You So Much!!

You have given me so much re-assurance. Words can not express my gratitude. Thank You so much for taking the time to help me out. I've been having a lot of anxiety over everything.So I'm sure that's not helping either. One day I'm fine, the next I have a stroke, hole in my heart, thick blood and now high cholesterol??? Oh Boy! LOL and to top it all off my surgery is scheduled for 9/11 ...I'm Doomed... The apptmnt with the cardiologist did not go so well - as far as him being able to answer my questions adequately or at all.But I do have faith, everything happens for a reason. So please just keep me in your prayers. With all my appreciation....  - Amanda

Just wanted to drop by and say, "Thank You", for your very thoughtful note and the continued support that you have shown me:) The past few months have been extremely trying for me. I'm not sure how I had been getting by or living day to day with all of this...but whatever it was that was getting me through, just stopped working. I'm still waiting to hear if Dr Natale will take me on. He has been coresponding with both my EP Dr and cardiologist. I am trying to think positively but have prepared myself for the possibility that the news I hear may not be what I had hoped for. I also wanted to thank you for all that you contribute to this forum and its members. You compassion and caring is endless! ~Adrienne

Thanks for being so patient and reading my rant. I'd love to lay down the law. I try to enforce boundaries without hurting her. Really, I'm the only family she has left in the world. I'm an only child; all her siblings are dead now; she has no contact with their kids since she wasn't close to any of them. I try to put myself in her shoes - being alone for the first time in her life and at her age. It's got to be tough. But I can't seem to take her anger full time. Call me a wimp but I get so tired. I'll do my best and hopefully have no regrets when she finally goes. Hanging in there.   irene

Hi, checked out the school today and it went great, in fact, I did not even think about PVc'S  and I actually enjoyed myself. If all goes right, I will start May 2, it is a great program and I am really excited. :)

bummer....is an SSRI Xanax???  I was thinking yesterday that I should just try 1/2.  (my doc told me to just split the 25mg in half)  I was having a terrible day and guess what....  I had skips off and on for several hours last night.  I didn't let them get to me but they were there none the less.  Today I feel better.  Maybe I'll be giving you the play by play...Did you turn in that moniter today?  I'm sure the doctor said everything still looked fine.  I'm fighting a pretty nasty cold this week too and that always gives me extra skips.  Hope your day is going well.  My bro and my x are builders (they own their own business) and they are both out of work.  Fortunately they have other things to fall back on but that isn't much better considering it is in the mortgage and loans buz.

Let me know how you like it.  I want a play by play on how you felt after you took it.   It is here in my drawer but I haven't taken any yet.  I did have one person tell me it made yer pvc's worse so of course I figure that would be me too.  Fortunately the drug wears off rather quickly I'm told so it would be short lived if I did have a reaction to it.
See, that is the good thing about the moniter because our minds really do make it worse.  
I'm sorry to hear you have the stress.  Man don't we all.  Sometimes it keeps me up at night and that is the worse.

Hey!  It is hard to stay away isn't it..
To be honest, I really don't know if those flutters are a short burst of svt or pvc's.  It happens too fast.  I might feel it 2 or 3 times a day.  Some days nothing at all.
The pvc's are definately what has picked up in my life.  The cluster type is very new.  I haven't felt many since the holter.  I did feel several today that were coming from my stomach with the longer pause.   When I feel the thud in my heart, the pause isn't as bad.  Maybe the stomach ones are the pacs.  Who knows.  I have a really bad cold and I'm thinking they picked up because of that.    I hope you are well.  Geez, I can't believe you still have the rest of the month to wear that thing.  I imagine after 30 days it does give you peace of mind.  THAT is a good thing!

I eat walnuts every day.  I either put a handful in my oatmeal or a handful in my yogart.
I have two books that I really live by.  Eat This, Not That and the Eat This, Not That Supermarket Survival Guide.
They are the best books.   They just help you to make the right choices.  Even if it is ice cream.  No diets or calorie counting ect.
Hope your heart is behaving...oh no wait, you want it to misbehave right????  When do you return that thing?

Wisconsin - thank you for thinking of me. My friend has been fighting ovarian cancer for some time now. I have 2 friends with it. One is doing well, Chris has not. She flew to Texas to get an expert opinion on a different treatment but instead was told there is no treatment left. Breaks my heart. I went through this with my Dad last year; here it comes again. Hugs back to you.

Arghhh! Oh, can I relate to those "disconcerting" feelings you're having on mixups, miscommunication etc. Medical bloopers&blunders is what I call it! I have often been the "STAR" on that show! LOL I could tell you stories that would make you cringe...it's a wonder I'm still alive, with all the mixups I've lived through these past few years! I agree with you, if it was something very worrisome you would have been called. When I sent my stip that showed VT at 250bpm, I was called in a matter of minutes.
