A Prayer for Fire Victims in California, Oregon, and Washington

Almighty God, be with your people in California now in the midst of the fires.
Bring an end to the loss of lives and the loss of homes.
Bring aid to the firefighters who, by serving others, serve you.

Bring hope to the displaced and the homeless.
Bring rest and peace to those who have been lost, and let their souls find eternal life with you.
Be a comfort and relief to the grieving.

As the cities are rebuilt, may no one be left behind.
May we see you in the faces of those in need.

Ugh! I always loved the Big Bat in Louisville, but not any flying bats!

Yes, I know flying bats are good for ecology, etc., but still... Not anywhere near me , please.

The Big bat outside of the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory was vandalized overnight with red paint, according to Hillerich and Bradsby officials.

Museum staff was seen trying to remove the paint Monday morning.
The big bat is made of steel, weighs 68,000 pounds, and is the world's largest baseball bat.
It is a replica of Babe Ruth's baseball bat.

Was there not a new baby added to the Johnson household near the same time the PM

contracted Covid-19?

New babies can change a person's life quite dramatically as well as COVID.
Perhaps the combination of these two major events is overwhelming for Boris.

He's not so young to be adjusting to an infant in his life.
Also not particularly young as a Covid patient.

You are all correct that I need to seek info from other sources re cardioversion.

I have consulted twice with both the PA in my cardiologist's office, as well as, briefly, with the physician who will do the procedure.
I just have to feel comfortable in my own skin before I set the time and date. - My own personal issue.

Still have more reading & research to do, but I do respect the experiences of DUers who care to share.

Slow heartbeat is better than fast, I'm told.

My runner son had a slower heart beat than average.
He was a competitive swimmer as youngster - long practices swimming lengths.
In high school it seems the swimming practice made him good for long-distance running, and in college for rowing.

You're correct about personal strength needed as we age.
How would we get through this pandemic without it?

Cardioversion for atrial fibrillation - questions about effectiveness, etc.

Cardioversion has been recommended for my recently diagnosed atrial fibrillation.
My a-fib is of the type that the heart beats slower, as opposed to those who have faster beats, palpitations, etc.

I wouldn't have known I had the condition, although I have been more tired and with less energy for about 6 months.
I also have increased swelling of ankles and legs, which leads to fluid in the chest cavity, a precursor to congestive heart failure.
ECG revealed the condition; heart echo shows my heart has not been altered/damaged at this time.
I am past 80, live alone in a one-floor house and mostly independent, though I sure appreciate any and all assistance from two nearby children.

I have mixed feelings about cardioversion, as I hear many comments that it doesn't work or doesn't work very long if it works initially.
Questions - does it work equally well for curing slow beat as it does for faster beats?
How does one know, except for ECG, that heart is still in rhythm?

Biden signs or bumper stickers can be placed in windows of your home;

Bumper stickers can be put on the inside of car windows, without using the sticky side.

People are not always nice or kind, but you can choose your time and place to display your Biden loyalty if that seems the best way to handle your situation.
