I took today off. [Sep. 15th, 2008|06:28 am]
hachi
and I just got back from the ER. I had an atrial fibrulation (sp?). Apparently my heart was running at about 200BPM and skipping beats. It's a long overdue bedtime now.

Update...

They gave me drugs: Toerol XL 50mg.

They had a nickname for this of "Holiday Heart". So named because people will often come in with it after binge drinking or something. I was in Napa yesterday tasting wines so that could be a possible cause.

Damn. Hope your heart stops wigging out. Take care, and I hope you don't require an internal defibrilator. My dad almost needed one when they were keeping an extra close watch on his hear when he was in the hospital for 4 way bypass open heart surgery.

Seriously -- my dad was 48 when he had atrial fibrillation. Do they have any idea why this happened to you?

I was actually just sitting on my bed using my laptop and I felt it start up. I thought it was a panic attack at first.

Holy shit! I hope this means that you are generally OK now? I know nothing about that condition, so I don't know what it entails or means.

Yes, sleep sounds very good for you now. Rest well.
