Tennyson should have left affairs of the heart to heart doctors

I don't really want to admit this -- because I am all about the bitter -- but I got a really good report from my cardiologist on Wednesday.

I went for my two-year echocardiogram, but he saw me and canceled the echo. He said that because my EKG was exactly the same, my heart and lungs sounded fine and I had no complaints, there was no evidence of the heart problems we are watching for with Friedreich's ataxia. He told me just to come back in another two years.

I think we can all agree it is my near monastic existence that keeps my heart in such fighting trim, leading me to think: "Tis better never to have loved at all than to have loved and lost."
