Old Age Ain't For Sissies

Because you get moments of terror.

Doing laundry yesterday I felt odd.

My heart felt like it was skipping beats.  The skipping irregularity was confirmed by checking my pulse at my throat.

The Lovely Harvey made me sit down and took my blood pressure.  235 over 92 with a heart rate of 98.

It came down some over the next 20 minutes.

This morning, still doing laundry, it's a healthier 110/78 with a 68 pulse.

I've always had a bit of occasional flutter in my heart, but yesterday was like it couldn't catch and wasn't going to.

Maybe the panic attack cranked me past it.
