Hello everyone. I pray for all of you who are suffering..
I am writing because I wanted to let those who remember my recent history how things are going now.

I am so much better now. I just got the clear from my cardiologist...I don't have to see her anymore unless something goes wrong..I had myositis on the heart..is what my doc called it...caused from Rhuematoid Arthritis..she told me that I was very lucky. She said this disease could have ate up my heart . (her words)..boy am I lucky.

We don't know if there is any scar tissue but I am almost symptom free. There were times where my heart rates were in the 200's..The bad news is if I get another bad flare it more than likely will attack the heart and lungs again.. (scary). Anyway just an update.
bless you all,
