We monitor my mom’s pulse and blood pressure on a regular basis. Recently, the pulse number has been erratic and sometimes very low. The same thing has happened with my dad due to premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) – extra, abnormal heartbeats that begin in one of your heart’s two lower pumping chambers (ventricles). I thought this could be the same thing now happening with my mom. She seemed to be feeling ok and the last thing we want to do is have another hospital visit, so we continued to keep track of what was happening. But it has been weighing on my mind. A couple of nights ago, I dreamed that I called the heart doctor who instructed us to download the information from the pacemaker which we can do with a home monitor instrument. In my dream, the doctor called us back and told us to go into the office to take a look at her. After seeing many of the lower pulse rates this weekend, I decided that was enough. My dad had an appointment already set up for today at the pacemaker clinic. I called the cardiologist first thing this morning and explained the situation to the nurse. She said to download my mom’s pacemaker information from home, which we did. She called back when they received the information and said it seemed the pacemaker probably needed some adjusting. She said to bring my mom in with my dad to the appointment. Just like my dream! Unfortunately, my dream ended there, so I didn’t know what to expect next. The technician at the clinic did some tests and verified that my mom does in fact have PVC’s. The home devices don’t always pick up those abnormalities, so it can show as a low pulse. She adjusted the pacemaker slightly. My dad was also checked and everything was working properly. It was good to know what was causing the abnormal readings and good to know all is well.
I Found God today in a dream-reality correlation with a positive outcome.
