Bad news, my heart is back in a-flutter. They are going to shock it back into rythm, and I'm probably going to have to get another ablation procedure done. This sucks.

Doctor says light weights until my rythm is back to normal. Not looking forward to another ablation. Fuck.

Thanks man. It's been a frustrating year. Every time I think I'm almost out of the woods some bullshit reappears.

Beginning to mid-December I was feeling incredible and really thought I was on the verge of being done with this.

I just read somewhere that ablation procedures are 95% effective for A-flutter. So those were some pretty good odds for me to land on the bad side of 😑

Damn man. Sorry to hear that. You will get through this obstacle. You have already been through a lot and seem to have the motivation to succeed.

I do man, thanks. I'm a fucking turtle; I just keep plugging along as my goals move further and further away lol.

Fuck it though, life is about the journey, not the destination. I'm happy, and have a lot to be grateful for.

This is why ye will come out the other side of this even stronger, Mate - that kind of attitude. Get healthy, hard training will be there when yer body is ready for it again. Take yer time, like ye said - its the journey, not the destination.

Lifting is so much more enjoyable when your heart isn't beating at 160 bpm. I felt like a million bucks today. Time to get back on the gain train.

Took it easy, but my heart rate was looking great. It never went over 110 on the cardio machines, so I guess I can start picking up the pace again.

Keep on chugging. Glad to see the heart is behaving. Any timeline for the second ablation?
Bad news to report actually, my heart went into flutter again this morning. Good part is I had an ekg scheduled for today so the doc knows about it. They are going to try to get me in fast as possible (like 2 weeks) for the next ablation.

I'm just totally bummed this is happening again already. I'm afraid to do anything now. This sucks.
