I Always Knew I Had a Big Heart...

I went to the doctor this morning. My EKG results came back and my heart rate was a little slow. She thinks I could have an enlarged heart and that it's kind of weird for a healthy 26 year old. She sent me for an electro cardiogram (basically an ultrasound of my heart) since the EKG just monitored the heartbeats and not the dimensions of my heart...or something like that.

I go back 6/19 for the results. I'm sure if there's anything truly serious she will call me before then.

I'm not freaking out about this. Not, at least, until I know more. I'm just going to enjoy my trip to Texas and Minnesota and worry about it on the 19th.

So that's the news.

Oh and I'm definitely not pregnant (they checked).

I thought a slower heart rate was a good thing? I am sure she was just saying that it could be a sign of an enlarged heart to cover her ass. Try not to worry (too much) until or unless you get some concrete news justifying it.

Scary! But I agrre; if it's serious, they will call you beforehand. They don't mess around with heart issues.
