Thanks for all the good vibes, gang.
Home from the cardiologists. Roads were perfect.
NO A-fib.
What is happening is something called Bigeminy. (Google it).
The short version is that I'm having extra beats between the normal ones. So its a form of cardiac arrhythmia.
The extra beats occur when there is no blood in the chambers to pump so It causes the BP to drop. As far as I understand it.
They did some changes to the pace maker to compensate and I have a follow up next week.
In the mean time if I start to have any of the usual heart attack symptoms call 911 per usual.
That's all I know for now.
Thanks to all for standing by me during this latest adventure.
Keep on keeping on....
Torchie

Glad to hear you got to the Doc, got some answers and hopefully a remedy for what's going on with your ticker. Here's hoping things keep improving .

You're a good man, Torchie. You've given us a lot more than your custom car building knowledge.
You are the best friend I've never met.
Many of us can thank modern medicine for prolonging our lives. Hang in there buddy.
