Well, I talked to my cardiologist today...

He is not only very smart, but he knows how to listen. He is also a lovely person with a warm sense of humor. I picked him out of all the cardiologists I knew back when I was working in the hospital, and I have never regretted it.

So, today I had another shorter episode of irregular heartbeats along with some near-fainting sensations. I was at home, and alone. And I was scared. So, I called his office.

I talked to his nurse, and explained how this was nearly a repeat of what had happened Saturday, and that I wanted to talk to him.

A little over an hour later, he called me back. I gave him the scoop.

He told me he wants to check my blood levels of various drugs and chemicals, and he also wants me monitored on a 24-hour Holter Monitor. I've done those before and they're easy.

So tomorrow I get some fasting blood work done, and the monitor glued to me for 24 hours.

Then we'll see what to do next.

Thank you all for being here for me...You are my electronic family!

19-year-old Student Develops Ocean Cleanup Array...

19-year-old Boyan Slat has unveiled plans to create an Ocean Cleanup Array that could remove 7,250,000 tons of plastic waste from the world’s oceans. The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that could be dispatched to garbage patches around the world. Instead of moving through the ocean, the array would span the radius of a garbage patch, acting as a giant funnel. The angle of the booms would force plastic in the direction of the platforms, where it would be separated from plankton, filtered and stored for recycling.
