Down for the count today

I have atrial fibrillation. Its been an issue for 7 years and it gets more and more frequent. I’m averaging an episode every 10 days or so. I’m one of those lucky people that are debilitated by it. Some people have it and don’t even know. I am so symptomatic that I’m stuck on the couch until it stops. If I get up to go to the bathroom or to get something to eat, then my heart rate jumps even higher and I get dizzy etc. I’ve been wearing a heart monitor for 10 days and this is the 2nd episode its caught. Thats good. What’s bad is that the longer the episodes last the more I wonder if this is the time it won’t stop. So far I’m 8 hours into this one. My longest episode lasted 14 hours a few weeks ago. I’m praying I’ll go back into rythmn soon.

I’m bored. I’ve been watching Youtube video’s all day but I want to go make some cards! I got some new stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs on Saturday. I tried to make something with them yesterday but my creative juices weren’t flowing. Today I have lots of ideas but can’t do anything about it. I also have a package in the mail box from Simon Says Stamp with some more goodies that I want to play with, but I’ll have to wait until I feel better. It can take me a few days to bounce back from an afib episode, depending on how long they last or how bad the episode was. Hopefully I’ll be back in a day or so with a more cheerful post! I hope you are all well.
