And even darker nights. Sat here feeling sorry for myself I was diagnosed with PAF late last year but looking back I suffered episodes from 2009. I have now been in slow HR AF (about 70 bpm) for nearly 36 hrs and feeling anxious my beautiful little grandaughter is three today and I can't miss her party 75 miles away for the world. Apart from the fact I have all the food in the boot of my car I simply have to make the trip. I am 68 with a vas score of 1 and don't take anticoagulants (my EP'S advice) I am due a abalation around April/May time. I do have a Bisoprol 1.25 as a pip which I have been taking for rate control but the HI is still slightly uneven. It's now 5.30 and it feels a lonely and rotten life right now and it's been a long night. Sorry to go on so.
