Silver lining?

Almost afraid to write this incase I jinx my health!

Some of you may remember that I recently spent 9 weeks in hospital with sepsis/endocarditis. In the latter weeks I mentioned to the consultant that I felt that my AF had improved during my spell "inside". She nodded, as a mother would with a child and dismissed my theories about rest, relaxation etc with a friendly smile.

Since I came home this feeling of wellbeing has increased and now that I'm getting my strength back I feel better than I have for years.

As I say, almost afraid to post this, but there is tangible proof in that the leak from my mitral valve has now been regraded from severe to mild.

Just thought I would share to let others see that sometimes good comes from unexpected sources. xx

  • The body is amazing and unpredictable. I was in hospita with sepsisl for half the length of time you were but with missed medications, fasting and stress I was really worried that the AF would return. But it didn't. Doesn't mske sense but made me happy.
