Speeding Heart

Greetings!  Hope this finds everyone doing well!!

It's been rather quiet around here lately, which I will not complain about!

We had a busy start in July with traveling, but then got to spend some time at home and then back at camp last weekend.

The last week of July was busy with appointments.  T-Bone went to the vet, then I had a dermatologist and cardiologist appointment.

I'll share more about T-Bone in an upcoming Pupdate 🐾.

My dermatologist was great.  I've been going bi-annual since I had a funny mole, but I'm happy to report that I have been approved to go back to annual visits since I haven't had anything suspicious in 2 years! Yippee!

Then there was the cardiologist.  If you need caught up, read here and here.  This appointment was to have my echocardiogram and get hooked up for my 48 hour monitor.  My heart still does it's weird stuff with fluttering and some palpitations, so I was actually really excited that it was being weird on the day of my appointment.  Even during my echo, I could feel it fluttering.  So, I hope that means they can see what its doing and whether or not it is bad or OK.  It was a super easy scan - I just got to lay there while the tech moved the sonogram thing around on my chest.  Yes, she did get up close and personal with me...lol.

Then came the monitor.  They put 5 electrodes on me - 3 by my heart and then 1 on each side.  The damn tape was the worse part.  It's been almost a week and I STILL have tape and sticky stuff on me!!
Aren't I cute with all the tape!
Almost done!!
We left for camp the afternoon I had it put on so I didn't workout while it was on.  Which was good for me considering I couldn't shower for the 48 hours it was on! Eek.  I had to write down any time I felt it do its thing and what I was doing at that time.  I had a handful of times to write down, mostly of which was while I was sitting down watching TV.

Funny side note - I was on the way home from the cardiologist appointment and got a speeding ticket.  🚔🚨 Dang it!!  It was my first ticket EVER!! I had been pulled over once before when I was a freshmen in college (16+ years ago!!).  So, that stinks for me.  I'm sure the heart monitor shows a spike at that time!! LOL
