Hope all is well with all!
Just wanted to ask any prayer warriors out there to say a prayer for me!
I have afib as most of you know and some of the symptoms are shortness of breath and fatigue. I have both, but this summer they got worse. So went to see my cardiologist and she ordered a stress test. It came back with a possible blockage.
So Monday morning I have to go in for a cardiac catherization. I hear these procedures are as simple as dental visits, but its my heart you know???
I'm kind of nervous even though I know I am in good hands.

Thank you Rosemi!
I am very motivated to protect my health and my WLS was the 1st really big step I took towards doing that.
I would urge any of the posters or lurkers on here to get a sleep study done. Sleep apnea and heart problems can go hand in hand.
I went undiagnosed for years. I suspect it was a contributing factor in developing afib along with a very strong history of it and heart disease running in our family.
I will post after I am home from procedure.

Thank you Judy.
They DO say its an easy procedure, but anything medical makes me nervous!
I didn't know your mom had it done! And if I recall she lived a very long life, right? That is comforting!
As I said above I will post when I get home.
Thanks for the prayers!
