triple good health news yesterday

1) I had my 1 year post chemo complete appointment with oncologist and he said still all clear according to CT scan and blood work.

2) my cardiologist took a look at the CT scan and determined my aneurysm hasn't grown in last year so still no surgery needed.

3) my embedded HR recorder captured an AFIB episode while finishing a sprint interval biking yesterday and my cardiologist looked @ the trace and determined it was SVT which is the more benign version of AFIB so no ablation necessary.

I sure have a lot of health issues for a healthy 55 year old ;-) Thank goodness for protection for pre-existing conditions.
