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.
