Today is my first day back in the saddle after being off on our family summer holidays. It's all go at the Vineyard, the builders and painters are getting the Storehouse ready, Crash (www.vineyarddungannon.co.uk/crash08) is just around the corner and I head out to India in two weeks with a team from VCD and some friends from Paisley Vineyard.
ok so here it goes this is my story,
early last year I went to the doctor because I hadn't been feelin to well - getting dizzy and feeling faint sometimes. She did an ECG and it revealed I had a heart murmour. Anyway I had to go to a few more appointments and doctors kept sayin it wasnt anything to worry about so I cancelled the appointment to get a heart echo done.
Then this year I started having palputations every now and again and sorta thought I should mention it to my GP. She made me another appointment to get the heart echo done and told me off a bit for not going in the first place.
I had the heart echo done on tuesday 3rd June and it revealed I had a hole in between the top two chambers of my heart called an ASD. The consultant told me that they would get me in for another procedure called a TOE (transoesophageal echocardiogram- put a camera down your throat and take pictures of your heart from the inside) which could tell them how big the hole was in order to find out if they would need to close it.
On sunday 8th June I went to the healing service in church. While we were worshipping, you (Jason) asked people to put their own hands on what ever part of their body needed healing and you prayed over us all. So I put my hand on my chest over my heart and prayed as well.
The next week, I got a phonecall from craigavon area hopspital to tell me they had an appointment available to get the TOE done on Wed 25th June.
So I went and got it done. When I came round from the sedative a couple of hours later the consultant came into speak to me and told me that there was NO hole!! and everything was normal!! I was still a bit drowsy so just said ok and never asked anything else! like why was there no hole?
My discharge letter says "small pfo with no flow = (which is a tiny hole I had when I was born that closed up), NO ASD and essentially normal"
pretty cool eh?
