Greetings Jenny —
Here is your horoscope for Friday, April 6:
Your heart is too big. No single person can take responsibility for
this much unresolved yearning. Cut back on the load that you’re carrying.
Think about your health.

Funny that it talks about both my heart and my health in that post…

I went to the cardiologist today. I accidently got off the subway two stops too early and had to walk a few blocks, which kinda sucked, but I think I still got there nearly on time.

In the waiting room, Martha Stewart was on television teaching me (get this) how to my my own homemade marshmallow peeps. PEEPS! HOMEMADE!! I’ll bet it’s more expensive to buy all the pans and mixers and candy thermometre and ingredients than it would be to just go out and BUY a row of Peeps. The woman is insane. She scares me.

Cardiologist thinks I have an extra electrical wire thing in my heart. It’s not regulated normally, and what it sometimes does is just go fast for no reason. He’s going to put me through more tests – a stress test and another 24 hour holter test. The only time they have to do these tests is Friday the 20th. After that, he wants to send me to Toronto General for electrical tests on my heart. If this electrical thing turns out to be what’s wrong, then they do this procedure that zaps that extra wire and makes it do nothing instead of confuse my heart. I would apparently be awake during it, and it has a 95 – 98% success rate. He the doctor said he’d rather do that than put me on medication for it. I like that idea.

I feel better having some sort of an explanation, rather than thinking ‘gee, I could pass out again for no apparent reason, only this time it could be in the middle of the night on the street, or when I’m driving a car, or whatever.’

Cam is on, although I may be wandering in and out of the room. Maybe I’ll point it at the cats when I’m not around. They seem to not mind being on cam…

    It’s good to hear that the doctors finally have an idea with what’s wrong with you, I hope everything will work out for you.
