Stronger...

Me
Well, it's been a hell of a week.

Mark has always had periodic dizzy spells. I was always a bit concerned about them, but they'd pass. Perhaps low iron or something. But then he started noticing his heart was beating kind of strange about two weeks ago. That Friday, he mentioned it to me. I leaned in to listen and heard a distinct irregular heartbeat. My instinct went off: heart issues, to the hospital. Went in to emergency, but they didn't find anything wrong, and he was feeling fine, so they sent us home. We did this again that Sunday night, and again they sent us home.

Last wednesday, he almost passed out at work. His coworkers (who are amazing) got him in a resting position and called 911. The ambulance came and the paramedics finally got a cardiogram of the irregular heartbeat and got him admitted to the Foothills hospital. I got the call at 1pm and dashed up there.

He stayed in the hospital for three days, and they ran all sorts of tests on him, including an MRI. Their conclusion is atrial tachycardia, a non-fatal cardiac problem. They've given him medication to help deal with racing heartbeat, but he still isn't back to normal yet.

I ask for your prayers that he can get healthy and active again soon! And if I'm bailing on things in the next while...please understand.
