Happy Heart!

No news could be better than finding out you have a healthy heart.  (Well, maybe finding out that Brad Pitt would like to meet me, or that I won a 5000 sq. ft. beach house in Hawaii might be better news).  However, today's news was EXCELLENT!  After finding out last week that a routine EKG was abnormal, I was FREAKING out!!!  I went for a stress test on Monday and waited until this morning to get the results of that.

Apparently, the stress test also produced an abnormal EKG.  However, the films and photos of my heart showed no plaque, no clogged arteries, no muscle damage, etc.  What may show up as abnormal is, hence, quite normal for me.  More than likely born with this.  I am considered a VERY LOW RISK for a heart attack and my doctor and the cardiologists gave me their blessing to exercise my ass off if I choose to do so.

A Happy Heart makes a happy owner.  I am a VERY happy person!
