  1. Sorry about the tachychardia episode. I have those “left reality for a split second” episodes all. the. time. Especially when I’m nervous or stressed, though. They are scary. I’ve only had one time where it locked in at 220 BPM and had there not been a doctor in the room to help me get it lower, I’d have been in the ER….I’m still waiting to see the heart specialist. 🙁
    The scarves are cute- I love how versatile they are….I’m to the point now that I don’t feel dressed unless I have one on in the winter! lol 🙂

    • So glad to know that I’m not alone…and that someone else going through this is still alive and functioning. It’s scary stuff and I worry about my family…

  2. Wow – that is some super scary stuff. I hope they find out what is happening and what they can do for you soon. As for the scarves, I am right there with you. Scarves are something that have always looked better on someone else. I have a few in the closet and I have attempted to wear them a few different times without success. I always feel I look funny in them for one and for 2, they really do heat me up. Obviously I have a hard time having my neck without starting to sweat. But you are definately rocking the scarf look! 🙂

    • Yeah I looked at some heavier scarves and was like “NO WAY! I’d die in that. I don’t even like sweaters with heavy collars, or turtlenecks anymore. I’m so glad I’m not alone in my anti-scarfdom. And that you think I rock the look. Thanks!!!!

  3. I know it is scary and can be serious. We will be praying. This happened to my mom and she was on a monitor and stuff and everything ended up being fine! It was a reaction to stress in her life. AND the reaction actually came after the stuff was over. It was like post-stress. So hang in there!!!

    Well, I think your scarfs look great! : ) Amy and I were shopping last time I was in OH and I tried the whole scarf thing. I felt like a fooooooool, as you said. haha Maybe trying them and then taking pictures how you did would work and give me a better idea of how they really look. Anyways, I love yours!

    • Thanks. Taking pictures definitely helped me not feel so stupid, although when I look in the mirror I feel pretty ridiculous. It helps that I kinda like these scarves. 🙂

  5. Ugh. The dreaded holter monitor. I’m not a fan, either! The ones I’ve worn don’t give results in real time like that! Joey had one from Cardio Net not too long ago, and I geeked out over the technology! How scary, though, when they do find an abnormality and tell you to go to the ER right away, though! Yikes! I’ll be praying for you!

    I think the scarves look cute! I can’t pull off looking cute with a scarf for the life of me! Haha

    • Yeah I’m not sure if mine is considered a “holter” because it only has three electrodes/wires. But Cardionet has been great. Their customer service is stellar…it’s easy to get a call into them with questions (except when you are in the ER and their service is down thanks to a hurricane lol). I’m not sure how the monitoring works. Are they watching me 24/7? Do they only get notified when I put in symptoms? Do they check it every hour? Is it all computerized? But I do know that I can record symptoms as they happen and that gets put with my monitoring, which is really really nice!

      You have some sort of heart defect right?

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels silly in scarves!

    […] few weeks ago, the evening of my ER visit, I was sitting on the couch messing around with my computer, just trying to relax. Russ had taken […]

  7. What a scary experienced, but thank God that it is not totally serious, and I pray that you are fully recovered now. And for the scarves, I like the scarf knot. Scarves can really help to a person who wears it to be more elegant and beautiful.
