We traveled to Big City yesterday for my annual follow up visit with my cardiologist. To refresh your memory, dear readers, I have been a cardiac arrhythmia patient for many years. My heartbeat has been irregular and fast for most of my adult life. It has, at times, been controlled by medication pretty well and sometimes pretty poorly. I remarked to my adorable wife at dinner a few nights ago that the current medication has done a great job for several years. I have been essentially symptom-free.
I was taken to an examining room and, in addition to the usual tests, given an EKG. Dr. Cardio appeared and remarked at once, "Gee, you look great." We discussed my general health and I told him that the medication was doing its job quite well and that I had no discomfort or other cardiac symptoms. After he studied my EKG, I asked him how it was; he replied that it was perfect. He stood up, shook my hand and said, "See you in a year."
Needless to say, we are very pleased with the result. As usual, we celebrated with a very nice lunch in Big City, put the top down on the convertible and cruised home the long way.
