You will be in my prayers ...

You're in my prayers as well-- try not to freak out too much!!

Take care of yourself and let us know how it goes. I'll pray for you.

Also in my prayers - hoping for the best results for you!

Oh, Jamie, I'm praying for you. Please keep us posted.

Jamie, I know this probably won't be particularly reassurring since I don't have all the details, but a good friend of mine went through a very similar situation after the birth of her 4th child. It resolved itself after a course of medication.
Prayers for the best possible outcome.

Yikes, hope you get good results back (or good news rather).

yikes! arrythmias can be very scary. they run in my dh's family, so far I have had two kids that have needed the 24 hour holter monitoring done. thankfully they both resolved after quitting caffeine....
Be sure to write down the nedical terms they give you (or ask for a copy of the official results). feel free to email me at any time if I can help interpret stuff.
The lactation consultant that helped me with baby #4 (23 years ago!) had 2 sons who both needed pacemakers to correct their arrythmias. They suffered from familial long QT syndrome. Other arrythmias can be treated with beta blockers (which are usually OK for breastfeeding) or in some cases a form of electrical surgery is done to destroy part of the heart's nervous system that is misfiring.
Of course, if the problem is due to an overactive thyroid gland, then that needs to be fixed first. But somehow I doubt that is the issue.

I'll be in prayer for you, Jamie.

I also don't like to separate from my new babies. After a new one comes home, I'm cheerfully waving "goodbye!" to all of the other kids, but the new baby holds a special place in my heart. I'm usually not ready to leave the baby until about 4 months, and that first time is always hard.

keeping you and your dear heart in mind.

prayers coming from our house to yours. let us know?????

I'll keep you in my prayers.

I'm so glad you went to the dr! Our friend had a similar heart condition, his heart would race like crazy. He needed surgery, but it wasn't an open heart surgery it was the kind where they threaded something into his veins, cut the extra nerve pathway (I think that's what it was?)and off he went.

You are in my prayers, can I make a request too?

I am making a desperate prayer request. My dearest friend's father (56) has been recently diagnosed with colon and lung cancer with tumors in his liver. Upon x-ray the lung cancer looks like snowflakes. This is beyond any surgical help. His name is Pete.

I was sent to your site by Linda (indigo girl) because I was having problems with my bm supply. I hear you are the expert ;)

This is the first post of yours I have read and it hits alittle too close to home. A very dear friend of mine passed away suddenly in February from a heart attack. She was 33 years old and the mother of a beautiful 2 yr old daughter.
She had no history of any heart problems or any other health problems to note. She would occasionally get light headed and alittle weak, but we never though much of it. It was just very sudden and shocking to all of us. I am still trying to come to terms with her being gone. Things like this make me realize just how fragile and precious our lives are.

I am a first time mom to a 9 mo old baby girl. I often worry that something will happen to me and I will not be able to be here with her. After this happened, I vowed to live each day to the fullest, as cliche as that sounds. Everyday I have with my daughter and husband should be special because life is too short to worry about who is going to do the dishes or take out the garbage.

I commend you for taking the initiative to go get yourself checked out. I hope that you are ok and that you will get better very quickly. I wish you and your family well.

My thoughts are with you.

Hey! How are you feeling?!

You know, you might want to stay away from the garlic for now - the passion might be too much for ya! ;-)
You've got my prayers too!

okay, it's the 29th. And I am wondering if you know anything yet? My dad wore a Holter monitor a couple of weeks ago, but passed that particular test.

I'm sorry that you're dealing with this. And check your e-mail! I wrote you about my trip to your neck of the woods.
