Well, this is pretty unnerving. I went to the doctor for a check-up and she found some slight irregularities in my heartbeat. Now I have a heart monitor wired up to me for 48 hours, recording my every heartbeat (and, I assume, every missed beat as well). Then I bring the whole thing back to the doctor, she sends it out to be read, and I have two weeks of limbo waiting for the results and imagining the worst. Is this just the beginning of the inevitable slide into decay? I always thought my heart was my least vulnerable spot.
