Apparently I've run afoul of the medical gods. About the time this post is published, I'll be checking into the local hospital for a "procedure".
Something called "cardiac catheterization". Evidently they're going to do a little "Body Wars" action, and slip a submarine (or something) into my blood stream to look at my heart. Unfortunately, Elisabeth Shue is not available right now.

So they're using Mr. T instead.
|I wonder if he has to remove his jewelry as I do? I also wonder who's going to tell him to do so? Not me!|
With a little bit of luck, they'll find nothing and start treating the symptoms with some blood thinners. Other outcomes will be a tad more complicated.
A prayer or two, if you're so inclined, would be appreciated.
Since it is the Holiday Season, I searched around for the best video of my favorite Christmas Carol, "O Holy Night". My maternal grandfather used to sing this to the family on Christmas Eve. As far as I remember, this is the only time and only song, he ever sang. He had a voice that would give these guys a run for the money singing that song.
But, after listening to a boatload of versions including a great one by a 7 year old, this is the Official Juvat favorite.
Added Bonus Video, for all those aspiring Fighter Pilots out there (You know who you are!). It's actually a pretty accurate and interesting video of flying. His analysis, if not his skill, is very good.
God Bless, ya'll. See you next week (I'd say with more better stuff, but...Suldog!).
Update: Thanks for the prayers! Procedure went well. Valium is a wonderful thing! But finding out that there is NO blockage and I only need to treat the Atrial fibrillation with Blood Thinners is a relief. Well.... That and lose about 50 lbs, change my diet, reduce the alcohol consumption and exercise. But still a relief. Thanks again.
