Christmas AF Poem - add your own verse

Please add your own verse.

A variation on Jingle Bells please add your own verse(s). Sorry know I should have waited until next week but just couldn't.

Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh,

All in sinus rhythm and laughing all the way.

Bells on Bobs sleigh ring, a wee dram makes him bright.

What fun it is as Ian skis by checking we're all right!

Tibetan bells, Tibetan bells Grandma plays today.

Oh what calm she brings to us in a caring peaceful way.

Tibetan bells, Tibetan bells jingle all the way.

Oh what fun to be so well on a snowy Christmas day!

  • I’ve got some flecainide. I’ve put it on one side,

    I’ll take a bit if things go wrong - AF then won’t last long!

    It has to just behave, while we all have a rave

    Sinus rhythm, that's the thing, for happiness to bring

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells,

    Festive greetings, all

    This forum brightens up our day:

    Of sunshine it’s a ray, hey

    Jingle bells, jingle bells,

    Take care, try not to fall,

    If too much trifle comes your way,

    You’d better take that sleigh

  • Brilliant. Thank you.

  • Great Job!!

  • Here's one

    "Just siting on the couch - I forget and slouch

    Vagus nerve reacts - I'm in A-fib, Ouch!

    Jingle Bells - Afib's hell - It stokes my wildest fears

  • Dashing through the door, on my way to play

    Pick up key from floor, heart goes way hey hey

    Alarm bells star to ring, chest feels rather tight

    Rhythm goes ding ding , oh no another scary night

  • Great and so appropriate.

  • Hi Jean,

    The whole thread is really very very entertaining,creative and festive but like Dedeottie my brain is temporarily out of action...CX

  • Jeanie, you rock! I'll get back to you with a verse once I think of one!!! You're the best!

  • Well, this isn't a whole verse, but here's a chorus...

    Take a walk, get your rest, put that cookie down!

    That way you'll be NSR when Santa comes to town!

  • Wise words. I was quite pleased with myself re the lines I thought up for you in my poem. X

  • As was I :-) Very clever. I could not have thought all that up if you had promised me a million dollars!

  • Well done all of you...lovely talented folk you are! I hope you all have NSR Christmas and peaceful New Year...and thank you all for your postings and support this year.


  • Ablation a success?

    Try not to second guess

    Feeling pretty well

    No INR for me

    I'll eat my sprouts and what I like

    Now I'm Warfarin free!

    Oh! Rattle pills

    Doctor fills

    Our tummies full of meds

    All we want is a quiet heart

    As we lie in our beds!
