      Hugs, and fingers crossed for the insurance!

        At least the amiodarone was changed. That stuff is the worst: might as well be chemo for all it’s bad side effects.
        I’m sure the insurance will come through for you

          Thank you all for the encouragement.
          Colin , the tour de France went through part of my "homeland" in Britanny, Tregor. I don't watch it much, but that huge fall on the first day looked really bad. I can't understand neither the lack of security, nor what went through this lady's head to do that.
          Louve rose , thanks , so cute!wa
          DorothyMH , did you experience amiodarone yourself, or someone close? I can't compare to chemo, but it was really draining, I can see that plainly now that my body's starting to eliminate it enough, I can walk decently, and stomach has settled, it makes a world of a difference. Definitly couldn't stand that treatment much longer.

          So, I walked every day starting Thursday at least 5,000 steps , and did some easy yoga.
          Insurance is still in limbo, it may have a solution next week, maybe not. We will see. Anyhow it is not in my hands anymore so gotta let it go!

            My mom tried to take it for atrial fib prior to having cardioversion for the A-fib. She couldn’t tolerate it AT ALL. I gave chemo when I was working as an oncology nurse and what I saw with my mom and heard my husb describe with his patients who were on amiodarone sounded similar.

              Glad you're starting to feel a little better, PSW!

              Yes, I saw the fall it was crazy! Tregor looks amazing - and the flag! A dragon/mermaid/man!

                Thank you very much for detailing, DorothyMH , your point of view is very complete and interesting. I did not realise you work(ed?) in oncology, that's a tough one. My first two atrial fibirilation, cardioversion could not be managed with drugs (no idea if they tried amiodarone) so I got a shock.Here, amiodarone avoided me the shock (they don't like to do it mor than two or three times on the same person), but yeah, it was ... rough. Glad to have stopped it!

                Colin , thank you. Yep, that's 1/4th of my blood, and as it is my mother's mother's area and we were quite close, I grew up with the local tales and folklore, even though I grew up close to Paris. I love St Malo, mind you, but when we go back in this area, it is definitly "my" soil.

                Every morning a bit of yoga to start again this body ; monday didn't have time to go walking to fill out more forms for this dratted insurance process, and tonight probably won't either since we expect family. But yesterday I did my walk and more than 5,000 steps. Daily meditation is a must, those days

                  Your terroir! I've almost certainly been somewhere in thatt area, PSW, as we went to Bretagne a few times and travelled quite a bit, but I was young, distracted, and don't remember... I do hope to go back though. I know St Malo and remember that - my mum and dad went there on their honeymoon, in 1967!

                    Grins to Colin , probably already mentioned it but they could have crossed path with my parents and my two older bros (5 and 3 years old) , in vacation from Dad's work in Spain to my grandma's house. Amusing idea!
                    So, a bit of yoga in the morning, meditation, and walked my 5,000 steps yesterday and today (workweek was ... crazy busy, and so were evenings between work, visitors, and filling out more forms / writing mails etc .... for the insurance). Could be better, could be much worse. And energy level back to an acceptable level all week.

                          Thank you Mamatigerj and Colin !

                          A bit more exercise this week - so far every morning I did a day of Vitality (Days 1,2 and 3 for Monday through wednesday so far), 1-minute yoga challenge (same days) and about 10 minutes yoga to complete. Monday and yesterday / Wednesday I did my 5,000 steps. And meditations - I really need them with the cumulation of refusals for my loan's insurance. On that field, there is still one or two things we can try (including one insurance that told me to reapply right after my surgery), so I am still clinging to hope, but it aien't easy.

                          Hope you all had a good Bastille day

                            I hope all goes well with your surgery tomorrow and the post-op healing.
