Charles Bridge in Prague Painting Made My Heart Skip a beat!

Dam**t! lost an entire afternoon of painting. Was just getting into the rhythm and on target to finish another painting today when my Heart went pitty-pat. Problem was, it didn't stop. I had had another episode earlier this week, but it went away quickly and I forgot about it.

10 minutes...not going away. made a management decision to call 911. A bit of nitro sprayed under my tongue, 4 baby aspirins...and a couple of VERY non-flattering grunt face exercises did nothing to bring it down. Atta girl. Stay the course and remain constant and consistent! Oops. not necessarily in this case!

Officially 'Supraventricular Tachycardia'. Heart rate a very consistent 250, so I guess I didn't cry wolf! They gave me something that brought it down, but that was a horrible feeling...Andenocard. Room full of people apparently were pleased when they could tell it was working...I kept hearing them saying, 'Yeah, it's working!' Apparently they can tell by your eyes...

Then I had all the lab work and x-rays and stuff...all was fine. Reminds me of when our laptops begin to run excessively loud and racing and the only way to stop it is to take out the battery and restart!

Bad thing is NO ONE filmed all this for YouTube! I kept them all laughing, though!

What is this? Why is my Red having to go to emergency? So any further instructions from the ER doc? Thank God you seem to be ok now. Are you really ok? How does the painting look? Stop scaring me! xox

Your Red went to ER just to give them a chuckle for the day. According to 'google' this is fairly common. I'm pooped today, but managed to finish 4 paintings (granted they didn't need much, but they are DONE!)
Will post new blog tomorrow, after we go to Springfield to see friend, Jimmy Wright from New York, give a talk about his retrospective at Springfield Art Museum! Randy is going to go too...wouldn't miss seeing Jimmy in person!

My daughter and I both get that. Mine usually happens if I get dehydrated and my blood volume gets low. It IS annoying when it keeps going very long!
