What a difference a day makes. First we got a hurricane hitting Florida right now and the winds picking here in Alamo, Ga. But the skies here are still clear, but the birds and critters are hunkering down like they know something’s going to happen. I’m outside enjoying the cool breeze calling up everybody getting my “ducks in a row” for my surgery next week. Yes, we finally have a definitive date and time for my cardiac ablation procedure. So the first week in October I head down to Savannah Georgia to have it done.
As you may or may not know, I’ve been having AFib problems with my heart for a while now. I was taking a strong medication to counteract it, but the side effects finally outweighed to good. So for the past year or so I’ve been living with frequent AFib issues. So my cardiologist recommended me for a new procedure and after a number of months, I finally got approved. Over the last few months my anxiety levels have ramping up. Partly due to inflation, but mostly due to rising health issues such as AFib. But since getting approval for the surgery and a slight change in my medication. I’m feeling a whole lot better mentally and physically.
At the moment I’m a little woozy from my recent flu and omicron booster shots. But I wanted to get those out of the way before going to the hospital. But even with the upcoming procedure and of course the storm, I’m feeling good and I’m feeling positive. I’ve pretty much covered all my bases as far as hospital’s, hotels, and travel arrangements. I got Lisa coming with me and her lodging and groceries covered. Hopefully this won’t be an overly complicated thing. Recovery should be fairly quick, the procedure isn’t too evasive. So while the wind continues to whip around me, I’m reminded that calmer heads always prevail. When caught in an unknown situation rely on the facts and not on hearsay. Because nature has a way of creating order to what otherwise seems to be chaos.
