I am in the hospital. I had an. Atrial fibrillation Event. I'm posting from the cardiac care unit right now. Happily this condition is very rarely fatal. It does cause strokes though.

Well,looking better on my end or no change!

1) Surgery very unlikely......the adhesion appears to be resolving itself. this also means the blockage is breaking up.

2) A-Fib and BP are still a factor, but resolvable through meds adjustment.

Glad to hear you should be getting better without further complication. I do believe that Rltot is correct, you need to mend up and get back in the water.

........as soon as I heard you were in the hospital, I baked you a get well cake.



Then I remembered they would not let you eat it in there, so rather than waste it, I ate it.
I wish you would stop doing this illness stuff, because I'm starting to notice some weight gain.

My A-Fib type is not a good candidate for ablation. It's due to an abnormality in the S-A Node (Primary rhythm control nerve group for the heart). p(.02) of a successful outcome, so no, I won't be doing ablation. Risk grossly outweighs the reward, in this case.
