One of the bluebirds found on the Kootenay Plains.
It’s a great day. It’s Monday, the start of a fresh week “with no mistakes in it” if you’ll let me quote Anne Shirley. (Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery. Anne was talking about a day, but I’m stupidoptimstic and will go with week). I’m grateful for many things already and now I get to add a new one. On May 14 I’m going in for some outpatient heart surgery at the U of A. It’s called catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. I got the call on Friday that it was set up. It’ll take all day and I have to stay in Edmonton that night in case I have to get back to the hospital for any reason. I’ve decided I won’t have to, but I’ll stay handy to it anyway. Prior to the surgery I need to have a cardioversion done again. It’s where the heart is stopped ever so briefly and then restarted. It’s done to restore proper sinus rhythm. Once that’s done I get to stop taking the second beta blocker I was put on recently. It’s all good and it’s just going to keep getting better. ** The bluebird in the picture is, of course, the bluebird of happiness. Have a great week, everyone. I’m going to.
