Life is crazy here. Keep praying for my Brother. He is doing good. Still very serious, but the most recent news is positive. Check out the updates on http://www.prayfortim.blogspot.com/
While here, I have been able to connect with a few friends so far. It has been great to catch up, as well as feel loved that they too are concerned about my bro.
Yesterday, one of my friends is a med student at the U of A. so I got a little tour of the place. We stopped by her locker so she get her stethoscope and listen to my heart. She wanted to know if she could hear my murmur. After she listened a while, she handed it off to me. I don’t remember actually listening to my heart before.
Then the funniest thing happened. My heart “skipped a beat”. Doctors have been listening for years to try and hear it do this. Couple weeks ago I even carried around a monitor to try and record my heartbeat when it does this. Though the monitor did get some good recordings, I don’t’ think a single doctor has ever been listening to my heart when it beats irregular. Then with in a moment or two of listening, I got to hear it. Pretty crazy!!!! My friend the med student also was heard it while she was listening. Unbelievable.
