Me and my new “live in” Buddy

Yes- it is true. A buddy has moved in  with me.  We have become very close.We eat together and sleep together. Wherever I go my buddy comes along. This new buddy of mine is attached to me and he is acutely  aware  every time my heart skips a beat. My new buddy likes to be on the go and  is somewhat fickle. He plans to leave me in two days and become attached to someone else.

My fickle friend is a Holter Monitor, designed to help detect dangerous heart  arrhythmias and to help determine cardiac functionality. I expect everything to be fine. I had a minor incidence a year ago and there is a history of hear t disease in my family. Thus my cardiologist suggested I have this procedure done. followed by a cardiac  exam and stress test. I have another day and a half before my buddy and I part ways.  Who knows. Perhaps we will become reattached next year.

  1. Hope everything turns out well, Elaine. I wore one of those once. It didn’t work worth a phooey. Wouldn’t record when I wanted it to. Then I found out it had been recording constantly, which they said it wasn’t supposed to do because it wasn’t that kind of monitor. Oh well, they said everything it recorded was okay. 🙄

    Count on it as your friend, you don’t have to make meals for it, you don’t have to clean the cage or the litter pan and best of all you don’t have to walk it outdoors in yucky weather and bonus…no poop bags..discreet or not, everyone knows what’s in your wee bag when you’re out walking a dog….

    Thank you for commenting. It was an easy guest. the monitors are much smaller than they used to be.
