There is nothing as boring as an Old Fart talking about his/her medical condition. But this Blog is also my journal so today I will do a short post on current and upcoming medical issues. No response or even others reading is expected, the post is so I have a memo to self.
I've been in AFib for the last three weeks, with pulse running steady at 100 bpm plus or minus about 10 bpm. BP has been inverse to pulse rate. I'm booked for an electroconversion Thursday. Still some debate if I will go through with it but whatever I've got to get back to a sinus rhythm. For the last three weeks any activity kicks my ass. I ain't gonna live that way.
In addition a month or so ago I tore a biceps tenon in my right arm which in turn has aggravated the torn rotor cuff. Bottom line, once back from vacation (first of September) I'm going to face up to rotor cuff repair. I expect recovery will be six months to a year, during recovery I suspect I may turn sinister or at least learn to do a few things left handed.
There are not going to be many big projects in the near future. I expect most of my shop time will be sitting on the shop stool with a whisky or tea and looking at my tools. Once recovery is under way maybe doing some rust hunting and refurb.
