I mentioned last week that we had skipped church because my Honey was feeling a little under the weather.
More precisely, v e r y, v e r y, t i r e d.
He saw his doctors last Tuesday and discovered that his BP was 90 over 60. His heart rate was 41. No wonder he was tired!
They had already cut his beta blocker dose in half last November but now they have stopped it altogether. They really prefer a heart/stroke patient to be on a beta blocker but not if his heart rate continues to drop!
So this past Monday, making sure the drug had left his system, we returned to the doctor to get a Holter Monitor which is like a little portable electrocardiogram strapped to my Honey's chest with four leads that attach with sticky pads to his body. He wore this for 24 hours and now we just have to see what his heart is up to.
Either it is beating at a rate above 45.... or he's looking at a pacemaker.
We are (not so) patiently waiting.
