Welcome to my new follower - Laurie - nice paintings!
Went off to hospital first thing yesterday morning to have an echo-cardiogram, electro-cardiogram plus another 24 hours ECG machine fitted.
Having the echo was fine. I was worried whether or not I had to lay down to have it done (30 minutes) because I feel sick if I lay on my side for too long. I was sat up at about a 45 degree angle and other than struggling to hold my head up, all went well.
Wiped myself down to get rid of the gel then went back out into the waiting room. A few minutes later, I was back into another room to have a quick ECG and then the 24 hour one fitted. Only 3 leads this time (the last one was 5 leads). Recording device smaller and with a more accessible button to push if I needed to.
I had to return both it and my diary the next day (except being a Friday, I have to return it on Monday) then wait for either another consultant appointment (more probable said the nurse as I was having these 3 things done) and/or a letter back to my GP. I have no idea how long that will take.
Once back home for a quick cup of tea, we went for a 2 mile walk (to double check if my tachycardia was present (it was), had a quick meal out then returned home. They said to do what I normally do to check how often the tachycardia kicks in and whether the arrhythmia only occurs during that or is present all the time.
That afternoon, we changed the bed, did some dusting, dug up some carrots, made yoghurt and baked.
Talking of carrots, I onlydug up 3, but one was huge:
The large one weighed just under 2 lbs and all three, just over 3 lbs!
