Medico update

The spouse had a quarter-sized carcinoma removed from his sternum after having been handed over to another dermatologist.
I think they do that to increase their revenue stream.
I was able to go along. Good thing we started out early because when we got in the Matrix, it refused to start. Bad starter?

I have been taking my five pills. No real shortness of breath today. Targeting fluid retention seems worth while. The diuretic only seems to work overnight.

An interesting paragraph from the NIH. Note the reference to “quality of life” as well as the suggestion that the irregularity of symptoms is very upsetting to some people.

Atrial fibrillation, the most common cardiac arrhythmia, affects at least 2.7 million Americans, and is a major contributor to stroke, congestive heart failure, and even late cognitive impairment. Symptoms include rapid palpitations, in which the heart flip-flops or skips; fatigue; shortness of breath; and difficulty with physical exertion. While some patients have no symptoms, others suffer a severely-diminished quality of life. Some become extremely distressed and even disabled by both the actual symptoms and the unpredictability of them.
