Last week my wife underwent a surgical procedure to correct her repeated bouts of tachycardia, i.e. rapid heart beat. She first began having this condition in 1988. The procedure was done at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos, California. It was an outpatient procedure, and she was awake without anesthesia during the operation. The doctors cauterized a second heart node that was causing the problem.
Since the operation, her heartbeat and blood pressure have been normal and she feels great! She has been happy and cheerful, and I haven't see her like that for some years.
In another 15 minutes, it will be June 5, 2016 -- our 40th wedding anniversary. This has been a great gift from medical science, and we will be looking for fun and entertainment to celebrate our life together.
