Scary incident with Rich Peverley

I heard about this on a news update on the radio this morning on the way to work. It caused anxiety with me.

I was around 25 yrs old and had developed Atrial Fibrillation, and was in the hospital resting from an RF Ablation procedure at U of M Hospital to repair it and that night I was watching the game when Fischer collapsed on the bench. It sent chills down my body because here I was laying in the hospital with the 'relatively non life threatening version' of what Fischer had. He had Ventricular Fibrillation I believe, which is the quivering of the lower ventricles in the heart. If those chambers don't beat right, you're dead. Mine was the top chambers were 'quivering', not beating right. Worst thing that would have happened to me was a stroke from pooling of the blood in the heart, but it was nowhere near as threatening to my life as the ventricular kind.

Anyway, when I heard the update this morning, I immediately thought about Fischer, and then about my former heart problems. Even to this day it makes me nervous and it's been 10 years, my heartbeat. Haven't had any more trouble, but I am into weightlifting and fitness, and it does cross my mind on occasion. What if I were to collapse like that? It really is scary stuff. For me, I'm 'cured' I guess, have had no problem in 10 years, but you just never know. I guess that's why it's important to try to enjoy life.

I'm very glad they were able to revive. I would assume his career is done.

So scary and I also heard about him asking to get back to the game.

Really hope the guy is okay. This sort of stuff is terrifying.
