My echo results just came in and everything is normal! Yay! My heart rate is still in the mid 40's, so the Cardiologist asked me to briskly walk around the floor a few times to see what my heart rate does. After a couple of laps, I stopped at the nurse's station and my heart rate was 100. They were really happy with that, and the doctor said that if my heart rate has the ability to raise that quickly that there are no problems. All these heart rate issues are most likely a result of me laying in bed for the past 6 weeks. Now, I am just waiting for my OB to come up and see me one last time, then I will be discharged. Hopefully for good!
