Just to keep things current, a follow up to a few who'd requested an update. It appears my 1st ablation was not successful, so I will be returning to the EP lab in two weeks. One piece of information that I thought appropriate to add was how helpful the AliveCor device was in recording the multitude, intensity and duration of the subsequent episodes. I am most grateful to Dr. Albert's invention, and Alivecor's assistance via email. As all before me have mentioned, once we've done the first ablation, the major fears of the unknown are behind us. So yes, I'll go back in with my fingers crossed this time!
