My Heart Issues—Part II
The One That’s Pumping Blood

A month ago, I wrote an essay about Valentinus, which seemed appropriate, since it was St. Valentine’s Day. Okay, historians aren’t sure about the actual history of the two or three Romans named Valentinus. Aside from that, all of them were Christian martyrs. One of the martyrs, while in jail waiting for his execution, cured the daughter of the jailer. Added to this strange tale is the legend that Valentinus wrote a note to the girl and signed it Your Valentine. That seems a stretch to us as an explanation why we send cards, chocolate, and roses on St. Valentine’s Day.

This month, on March 14th, I am following up on My Heart Issues…Part II. These issues aren’t related to lost loves, but they relate to my actual heart. Now, I don’t recall which medical school that I attended years ago. Regardless, I had an echocardiogram done several months ago. I went to see a doctor about a medical issue, and he sent me to get an echocardiogram. While the cardiologist that did the ECG wasn’t my regular doctor, the results of the test proved normal for a person my age. If it had been my regular cardiologist, we would have discussed my issues. Nonetheless, my cardiologist has the cd with all the videos of my heart during the exam. We will discuss my issues at my next appointment in several months.

In the meantime, let me explain to you my concerns. This is #28. Click on the arrow in the center of the video.

Now, since I can’t recall where I went to medical school, I certainly don’t recall going to any cardiology classes. Therefore, I must deal with my heart issues with the data and concerns that I have.

Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite and heartfelt colors are blue and yellow. Therefore, I get the issue of blue and yellow showing up in my heart. Perhaps, I am not unique. Maybe, your favorite colors can be seen in your heart also. However, back to my issues. The red that appears in the video obviously is my blood. Nevertheless, why isn’t all my blood all flowing together?

I’ve spent a great deal of time going through each video. #39 seems to indicate that my red blood is flowing more or less together, but I still have a concern about it not just running like water through the faucet.

Then there is # 44. I don’t understand the two different color bars running across the screen. The green one lacks much detail; it’s just a thin green line while the other one is a nice goldish brown with a lot of detail. It must mean something.

Well, I will have to wait until my next visit to my cardiologist. Then, he will allay any of my concerns about my heart. In the meantime, I wish you and yours a happy and healthy heart.

This is the complete video analysis of my heart. Click on the arrow in the center of the video.
