That sweet guy I call husband


They have determined that Curtis' heart and brain are fine. His Holter Monitor test came back perfectly. No abnormalities, blockages or other weird things going on in there. Then he had a CT scan. Again, nothing abnormal or weird there, either. Then this morning he met with a cardiologist and they determined it is indeed vasovagal syncope. They told him it was time to hydrate himself nice and good, and lay off the caffeine too. Things we have been working on for months now during our healthy journey.

I just wanted to say a quick little something about him. This whole thing has really made me realize how much I love this man. He is my rock and my best friend. Without him, I am not quite sure where I would be today. Whenever we have a health scare or something that might threaten to split up our love, we are suddenly brought to this place. This place of knowing how deeply we care for one another. I love him more than anything and I want to be sure he will be around for a long, long time.

We have had a fun time with this fainting thing. I have tried to remain overtly positive through this whole thing. Not wanting to think the worst at all, until it was confirmed. I think he has gotten used to the jokes that he gets about it, and I want to say how much of a good sport he has been. He has never freaked out about this, (not like I did in the beginning!!) and has remained the strong man that I know him to be. I know it's hard for him to admit weakness, and I thank him for keeping me grounded until we knew the results. I love you babe, even if you are a fainter. ;o)

The condition sure does sound like a female issue. I hope you guys are having fun with that bit, too.

Look, I'm commenting!
