In a previos post, I said I’d post the details of my absence, so herewith, the details, in abbreviated form:

Can you take me to the hospital?

How long have you been feeling this way?
About half an hour.

You’ll feel about 5 seconds of discomfort.
A long 5 seconds or a short 5 seconds?

I am simply the source of the lines on the monitor.

You’ve tried it 3 times and no change?

20 of lidocaine.

Are you sure doctor?

Do we have any paddles? Let’s get some paddles on him.

Don’t worry,… it’s just in case.

You’ll have a weird feeling.

How do you feel now?

Okay… but my rips are numb. I mean my brips are brumb.

You’re probably feeling better now.

Ventricular Tachycardia

So what happened to me?

Your heart was beating at 202 beats per minute… normal is around 60.
You’ll be staying overnight.

No haircut?

We got, what we believe was the main cause.

  1. 202 Wow! That was scary. I am so glad they fixed you up and you’re back in the saddle with the rest of us riders.

  2. Me too. It wasn’t until I got home and read about all this stuff, that I actually got nervous. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. 😉
