So flew on Sunday from Stansted to Venice. Followed everyone’s advice ie arrived early, valet parking, fast track security and pre booked seats. Smooth as clockwork. Limousine transfer to Hotel, so all was good. Felt great. Monday huge apprehension as hit the slopes. All went well. Woke up a few times in the night short of breath which we then worked out was because the hotel alone is at over 6,000’ which may just give a hint. Three days now of skiing as energetically as pre ablation. Had a few cold sweat episodes today but Kardia reveals nothing more than a few ectopics. Strangely until today I appear to have been ectopic free since I arrived. Regularly going up to 9,000’ during the day and no more fatigued than my 23 year old daughter. One small beer an evening and the odd regular coffee.
To sum up, one day of skiing to go and then back to England on Friday afternoon. I know as from Saturday its no more Rivaroxaban nor Flecainide except as PiP. Very apprehensive but the other side of the coin the amount of terrain we have covered, all red runs, has given me such a positive boost as I hit the three month anniversary of the ablation and the two and a half month anniversary of the Cardioversion. So thanks for all the messages of support and allI need now is a cure for my bloody sore knee.
