Donna Rose, Ian Lazarus, Chris, and Juliana, and all who have read and prayed without their responding,
Thank-you all so kindly for your prayers. I have since this afternoon returned to normal sinus rhythm. God be thanked for His mercy.
Juliana, my cardiologist tells me I am a good candidate for ablation therapy, which we have talked about several times. I got a lot of bradychardia too, (slow heart beats), so he was thinking maybe a pacemaker. But until there is any more symptoms, like an actual passing out (which hasn't happened yet), we're just monitoring it, routine check-ups every three months, and plenty of tests. May the good Lord be with your brother in law too. It can trigger anxiety attacks, because the fast flutters make it feel like you can't breathe as well. Anyway, let the Lord first heal our souls, and then, if it is His will, may He show mercy to our physical ailments too.
Chris, as for me being patient, trust me buddy, I'm hardly patient. I'm trying to be though. I try to take the Athonite Fathers as an example. It is a cross, and I'm doing my best to carry it, but this is not to say that I do a good job all the time, or even manage to "get it off the ground" (figuratively speaking) on other days. Aside from that, the demons love using physical trials like this for a series of demented thoughts. I mean, the spiritual cross, too. I try to lift it everyday, take it up and follow Him...doesn't mean I'm successful all the time. But I'm trying, and the prayers and well-wishing of all you guys here on the forum, means more than I can say. It's much easier to fight the good fight, when you know you got others fighting with you.
God bless your kindness threefold.
With love in Christ,
