9/17 update

Well, I slept poorly because I kept waking up needing a big deep inhale. But after I was up and moving around, I think I started to feel better... I counted 20 and then ... get this... 90 regular heartbeats! When I was counting the 90 set I was giddy in disbelief. Maybe I am turning the corner and my body is starting to create an antidote.
I am still lightheaded and exhausted. But that could be the medication. I hate this medication. The feeling that I am dreaming and everybody is just in my dream is very strange.

I gave more blood this morning to try to figure out (and explain hopefully) the hypothyroidism factor which is so bizarre. Hopefully they will let me know soon what came up today. At 1:30 I go back to the cardiologist for another EKG.

Thank you all so much for all the good vibes and prayers you are sending my way. This has truly been the most unsettling few days of my life. I'll add to this post in the afternoon after my 1:30 appt..

I have this feeling that this test was a "false positive" and you are just fine...
(P.S.- don't let them put you on thyroid meds unless you REALLY need them...it messes you up until you find a correct dose! I think Drs are too quick to put women on these types on medications...there is a range they are looking at and your range may be normal for you. I mean just think of the population they are basing "normal" on...they ain't ladies like you or me, that's for sure!)

Right! We are totally not normal! I am not so worried about the hypothyroidism, as I am about the heart going nuts on me. I jsut wonder why the hypo came up at all.

Thanks for keeping us updated, Jenny! Continued thoughts and prayers headed your way.
