Last night I had a bit of a scare dealing with my heart. It was something that was bothering me for the last day and a half until last night when it was really bad. I kept feeling this thumping, squeezing, cough inducing sensation in my upper chest/lower throat.

I called Valley Meds doctor line and spoke to the on call who asked me a series of questions and then told me to hang up and call 911.

Within 5 minutes of me calling 911, the first responders were pulling up. In all, a fire engine, paramedics, and ambulance.

Luckily, it was not a heart attack, the EKG was clean on that. But the heart monitor was showing irregular heart beats and my blood pressure was 158/93. Normally it’s 110/70ish.

Once at the hospital, they ran tests, blood work, xrays and settled upon what they call PVC, or Premature Ventricular Contraction. In my case, the bottom portion of my heart would pump twice in a quick beat, inducing a pause (skipped heart beat), and then a normal beat. That normal beat afterwards, as it was explained to me, was the sensation I was getting. The heart was filled with more blood than usual and had to pump harder to get it out.

They said it’s not something to really worry about at this stage, but I do need to make an appt with my doctor for some other tests. I think it may actually be caused by my new meds i’ve been on for about two months now. But we shall let them decide.

I also wanted to give a big thank you to the emergency personnel that showed up last night. It was shockingly quick and am happy to have first responders that good. Tukwila, Washington Fire dept, paramedic’s, and Tri-Med ambulance service.

PoTD Week 4

by David

FINALLY had some sun today! I think we went 8 days with continuous fog with a max of 1/4 mile visibility. Sucked for trying to get out and shoot some pictures. It’s a good thing I have Ein, he’s an endless picture subject.

Yes, its early, the other two pics that are missing will show up as I post them. But I won’t have access to the backend, can only email update, due to a server upgrade starting tomorrow.

Anywho, enjoy.

gray days

by David

This week started out nicely. Had two days of sun, yet crisp cold weather. They said it was supposed to be like this all day, so I took Ein to the park both days and had planned on taking my new metal detector out mid-week.

It started off the same, ice fog in the morning, and changed to… fog.

And stayed that way the rest of the week. So didn’t get to try out the metal detector yet.

Other than that, week 3 of pics are done. I think I will continue this way, putting them in the PoTD section daily, but doing a weekly update post of them. That way I don’t spam the front page, facebook, or twitter.
