day 15



This morning I felt tired when I woke.
I ate some sweets last night and I don't think that helped.

It was my fourth day back at work and the most days that I've worked consecutively in more than a month.

I had a few arhythmic beats.
My leg was more comfortable. I've hardly noticed it today.

This afternoon I had a lie down and a short nap.
I felt better for it.

Emotionally I feel grumpy and a bit down. I want to be doing more things around home but work seems to take most of my energy.
More patience required.

day 14

rest



Two weeks since I had my ablation.
I felt much better this morning after a good night's sleep.
I felt much more energetic.

My leg was abit achy near the catheter entry site, when i was driving this morning.
Then my thigh on the same leg felt wierd today. Sort of a cross between tingly and achy.

After work I shopped at the supermarket. I came home and did some washing, some baby minding and quite a lot of related walking.
When I was outside the phone rang and without thinking I ran up our steps to the second storey of our house. I used to always run up the steps but I haven't done so for ages.

I'm noticing that if I get tired I start to have more symptoms. My aches and pains come back and I get more funny heartbeats.
Today i had a few beats that i think were PVCs from what i've been reading. They were single beats that felt like a lurch and i felt a bit light headed with them. I don't much like them.
I think I really need to have a good rest every afternoon but I haven't been doing this so much in the last few days.
sleep and rest certainly help with my recovery.

Pain



I've had a mixed sort of day today.
I didn't feel very energetic. Luckily i had a quiet day at work.
I had pinprick pains in my chest quite often today, some tight feelings, some soreness, and some skippy beats. I felt a bit light headed after one funny beat.
I've got lots of aches al over my torso.

I did some washing in the afternoon after work and I enjoyed that. I did some walking too and that felt okay.And I watered the plants on the balcony.

I feel impatient again.
I just want to feel normal, for me. I guess i have to be patient. Two weeks after a heart procedure is not long.

I'm going to bed earlier tonight. I think sleep is helpful to the healing process.

Day 12  29.10.12

Today I have been more tired. I think I may have overdone the physical activity yesterday.
I was very achy last night. My ribs ached and my chest area was achy again.
I was glad to be sitting at work. I've done some stretches and some walking today but not a lot else.

My concentration seems to have improved.

Overall, I continue to get better.
