been quite an eventful week
last friday, the 29th i had a colonoscopy. and during the procedure my heart rate escalated to twice the normal rate and became very irregular. as a result i ended up spending the night and most of saturday in the hospital for tests and observation. they did 3 or 4 EKG's and an echocardiogram took a LOT of blood and there wasn't anything abnormal about my heart. this is called heart arrhythmia and if not treated properly could cause blood clots and/or stroke. eeeek! so i am now on a beta blocker for my heart along with my blood pressure medicine. GOOD news, my colon is in good shape, they removed a polyp but it isn't cancerous.
