Hey, Larry -- thanks for checking in with us. "What's up" is a long story, and you won't find it in our blog.
As you know, we cut our summer short to get Suzy back here for physical therapy, but everything kept getting in our way and slowing us down. The last thing that happened was in Tonopah, just outside of Phoenix. We stopped there to wait for a scheduled phone call. As we were preparing to leave, I had another heart scare: chest pressure, general loss of appetite, etc. Hurried to Urgent Care, where the doctor put me in an ambulance, as he thought I might be having a heart attack. After 24 hours of hospital observation, it turns out it wasn't a heart attack, just more atrial fibrillation.
So when we got home, my A-fib had to take precedence, and we visited my cardiologist, who sent me to another cardiologist, a specialist in the electrical side of the heart. Our regular cardiologist is a specialist in the plumbing side of the heart.
In the meantime, we went to our regular doctor for Suzy's neck problem. But our regular doctor had, just a few days earlier, been kicked in the face by his horse and was not available, so we saw instead a temp! He ordered physical therapy, so we went to our regular PT place, and their #1 therapist had recently moved away, so they were about 15 patients away from taking any new assignments -- we're on a waiting list for the new therapist who should start this week.
So that's how Suzy is -- no progress, and she is in pain off and on, more "on" than "off."
As for me, the "electrician" cardiologist wants me to have cardioversion, the electric shock treatment, to zap my A-Fib. We're not too sure about that, so we are going to call for a postponement until we can get a second opinion about it.
Short story: Suzy hurts, I feel fine even with regular A-Fib!
And that's "What's Up" at this stage of ... Our Life on Wheels.
