Good Friday (04/18/14)

It has been a good week for me. I have had very little pain and experienced no problems, except for the usual myasthenia gravis issues. I am still recovering from the surgery and am
very tired, but that is to be expected. I hope to attend church on Easter Sunday.

My heart was in regular rhythm Monday morning (04/14/14) during my cardiology appointment. My Chattanooga cardiologist, Dr W.W. believes my atrial fibrillation was connected to the thymus surgery as well. He also said it is possible the tachycardia I experienced after previous plasma exchanges was connected with atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, but was self limiting.

I will stay on the same medications at present and will pick up and wear a heart monitor for a couple of days in six weeks to check for continued atrial fibrillation. My follow-up appointment is in two months. If everything is clear and in rhythm then, I will return to my regular blood pressure medication.
