Heart Monitor

Well, I have been wearing the monitor for a few days now and am already tired of it. All in all it really isn't that bad and the technology is really awesome. If I feel anything ( rapid heart beat, chest pain, etc) I just log it on this little monitor that looks like a cell phone. All the data goes to a company called Cardionet where I am being monitored 24/7. Then the doctor gets a report each morning including anything I recorded. It is pretty cool and they have not sent me any text messages saying there are problems so..... so far so good, but still have 19 days to go.

I did do a 10 mile run with it yesterday, and it really did not bother me too much. I am feeling much better now that it has been several weeks since my last treatments. I am looking forward to the results and hopefully I can continue on with my training and not worry.

That's about it for now~ Elayne

Wouldn't doctors of 50 or 100 years ago be amazed? Hang in there. Art

Hi there. I just finished reading your last two blogs (I'm a bit behind). I imagine the cardiologist wants to see if you are going into abnormal rhythms, either too fast or too slow which could cause the symptoms. I can't imagine wearing the monitor for 3 weeks. I found 24 hours hard enough. Though, they are smaller now.

I can only imagine your disappointment of having more barriers to overcome. You seem to get over one and there are more. You do have a lot of physical and spiritual strength which certainly do help.

You are always in our prayers. One moment at a time.

Love you and the family.
