He does have a super heart, he loves the best…but we still need to figure out what is going on.
So yesterday started out trying to get into the ENT and luckily we could, we also had to do a followup doc visit later from Jeff's urgent care visit with his 102 temp .
The ENT sucked wax out of Jeff's right ear and checked his left and yes he has fluid build up, so they gave him different meds to start taking and he will go back to the ENT next week.
So then we went to lunch as we had a couple hours to waste between appointments and we did not want to drive all the way home. We got to the followup docs early and waited, they got us in and she did some checking of Jeff, then she checked his heart and was like wow.
Jeff's heart was beating really fast and erratically, something about 120 or something, she said that it was high the night before when she was reading the notes and usually it is like regular when she looked back to check ups etc. So she wanted an EKG, and blood work. So we did all that.
She wrote him an rx for aspirin and a high blood pressure pill. That had me worried cause she said his heart had slowed down when she checked him before we left but it was still beating all out of whack. Then I am thinking in my head, what happens if he takes this high blood pressure meds and his heart has slowed down regular, but I need to trust that God has us in his hands…yikes, and that we can read. We went to get the meds on the way home, and they said they were out of the aspirin but we could get that over the counter, so the pharmacist gave us a bottle and said it was the same. We get home Jeff opens it up to take one and I read the bottle and it say pain and fever reducer with no aspirin, and I am like this is not even the right stuff, so I called the pharmacy and they were like oh my gosh we are so sorry bring it back. So back I go and get the right stuff, they apologized over and over. I mean my gosh is that not their job to give the right stuff, the girl said when I went back they are trying to clear the store of stuff so that might be why they gave me that…ok whatever.
So anyway back to the doc office story…when she came in to check him again after the EKG, Jeff had told me he had a super heart and she just had never heard that before. I could tell he was scared and trying to be funny, this is nothing we have heard before, heck the doc the night before never said anything about a fast heart rate, just if Jeff had chest pains. So the doc could not understand how Jeff was feeling fine and joking around…other than he can't hear out of his left ear. So she scheduled him to see a Cardiologist so that is where we are off to today.
So say a prayer for Jeff will you.

My prayers are with you Diana. I will add Jeff to the prayer list at school. We have Mass there everyday, so teachers and children will pray for him. Keep us appraised.
I hope you get answers but I have to tell you I have suffered atrial fibrillation. I have been a regular blood donor throughout the years and over the past 5 years, noticed my pressure had went up to 130 over 90 instead of the usual 120 over 80. I was not quite 40 so I didn't worry. 40th bday came and that day as I was driving my son to dive practice, my heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. thought i might be having a heart attack but had no pain, so I kept second guessing myself and eventually DROVE MYSELF to the ER. yes very dumb! so I get there and they are astonished my blood pressure is in the 200's and they do lots of tests but determine I am not having a heart attack and refer me to the cardiologist. turned out I had atrial fibrillation. He recommended a cardiac ablation the next week and I was scared then. But I did have the procedure and yes it took a while for me to feel 'normal' again but I have gotten there. So don't be afraid, he might have to wear a halter monitor to get a reading of his heart. prayers it will all be ok but having the answers is better than having some unknown episode! The benefit of taking the blood pressure meds and the aspirin is to avoid a stroke which could happen with a misfiring of the heart. So try not to worry too much and hopefully you get the answers soon. I'll be praying for you all! By the way I saw Dr. Rodrigo Chan on Power and Broadway. He operates out of the Banner Heart Hospital. Very conveniently close.

I’m praying for you and Jeff.
Man how scary is all of that! I don’t know what is going on with with the medical industry. You are suppose be able
To trust that they are doing their job and you can’t anymore! I’ve had similar situations happen. If I didn’t question thinks there would have been major problems. With my sister in law there was. A doctor didn’t do his job correctly and she passed away. I’m so glad you questioned the pharmacy. Please keep us posted. I will be praying 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
