Change of Plans

Well, here we are sitting in a cardiologist office.

Al went to his new doctor today thinking he had a sinus infection (he does).

Apparently he had an abnormal EKG, and his doctor sent him to a cardiologist.

So....here we sit, and I am trying not to panic.

Wish us luck.

  1. Thoughts and prayers are with you. My husband's EKG is always abnormal - they discovered he had a congenital birth defect with an arterie in his heart - doesn't put him at any extra risk, but always causes a stir in the doctor's office. A abnormal EKG is not necessarily serious - just something to get checked.

  3. I'm sure he will be fine, but in the wait, I've said a prayer for both of you! Heart issues could be much worse than an abnormal EKG, so it's good to catch that and get it checked. It's amazing how easily heart health matters can be handled. We've been through several different ones with Hubs and he always comes out quickly and right back to normal! The number one thing to do to avoid them is no smoking!!! Don't know if Al does or not, but everyone should quit!

    Will be thinking of you both!!

  4. A perfect time to catch any abnormal heart issue is when you are in the doctor's office. I'd call that a sign of good luck. I don't believe an abnormal EKG is all that uncommon but I'll be thinking about you and Al and hoping to hear good news later!

  5. The good thing is that you are being checked out right away. When Bill had an abnormal EKG he had to wait a month to see a cardiologist. And another few weeks before he could get a stress test. But his irregular heartbeat and heart murmur turned out to be something he was probably born with and not considered a problem. Seems like the fear and anxiety that you go through just makes it worse. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

  6. I had an abnormal EKG as well. Went to the cardiologist and his comment was "if those damned engineers would listen to us and change the way the EKG works less people would get these false readings!!"

    He checked me out and said the last thing I need is a cardiologist. Hopefully Al is told the same thing.

    Good luck!

  7. I like your last commenter. Try to assume the best rather than the worst since that will make you all happier and it's probably true.

    Been through all the worries and fears so I'm thinking of you.

  8. Better take a look at it than ignore a possible problem. It is one test that so often gives false results, but has also saved many from heart attacks later.

    My thoughts are with you.

  9. Oh Karen - my heart goes out to you. I understand how hard it is not to know for sure what is wrong and what can be done to fix it. Praying that all will be well and asking for the Lord to calm your fears.

  14. Karen, my prayers and good wishes are coming your way for Al. There's nothing like finding out early if there's a problem, or just something to watch. Don't panic, hopefully you will have good news soon. You have a lot of people praying for you and Al.

  17. Sometimes the fears are the worst of it As everyone has said, there are things that can kick out an abnormal EKG, and maybe it will turn out to be not serious. prayers and good wishes that things will be normal, or easily fixed and turn out ok. Take care...We're all here with you waiting for the results.
