Heart Event Monitor…fun.

I broke down and scheduled an appointment to get an event monitor this Thursday. I will have to wear leads on my abdomen/chest for 30 straight days while the device records the actions of my heart. I am pretty bummed to have to do this. But I think it will finally give me some answers…
