oh, my heart...be still...and Layla's too

I just heard from Layla's pediatrician, who basically told me what I already knew from Tuesday's EKG. 

Layla is having runs of irregular heart beats.  I could see it on the machine.  I knew what they looked like from my previous cardiolgist visits. 

It was determined about 6 years ago that have PVC's.  And now it appears that Layla is having PAC's.  To the tune of 3 in a row each time. 

The information I received today is minimal.  I do know that she will have to go to see a cardiac specialist, probably an electrophysiologist.  Her doctor will call me back tomorrow with specifics, specialists, names, and our next steps. 

Your continued prayers are most appreciated!

The trouble with always trying to preserve the health of the body is that it is so difficult to do without destroying the health of the mind.
