Well it’s good news, the scan showed nothing structurally wrong with K’s heart, we still don’t know what caused the episode in June or the dozens of problems since but it seems there is no immenent life threatening problem to be concerned with.
There are some more tests to be done, a treadmill stress test in about a month and then in about six months time (damn waiting lists) she will get an event recorder for two weeks. This will hopefully capture all the times that her heart is flicking into atrial fibrillation and if it is happening often (as it seems to be now) then the cardiologist will possibly recommend medication. He won’t do that now though, which is fine by us, because they have only caught it once on the ecg, and K would have to stop breastfeeding.
This is a huge relief, although we still don’t know what is causing all the issues, particularly her frequent dizziness which may not even be related to the atrial fibrillation. What we do know is that after the last few years of ttc, and a rough start the last 5 months, K is exhausted so we will be doing what we can to get her nice and rested. There are three more weeks after this one of term left and then it’s a two week holiday so we will be hanging out for that.
K took the whole day off yesterday, so we went to a flash food market and got some nice lunch and then went home and a big family nap – we were all pretty shattered!
Thank you all for your support, we’re glad to report good news!
