Photograph of The Heart of Mary (by Kupelwieser) in the side chapel of St. Antony in in the Peterskirche, Vienna, Austria.  Photos of paintings are kind of weird, but I liked the image enough that I went with it.  I’ve been doing the Catholic thing and beseeching a patron whose intercession is both powerful and punny, so for all things cardiology, Immaculate Heart of Mary it is.    (There are other, better reasons as well.)

For those who haven’t followed the saga, I’m headed in for mildly invasive testing, with possible follow-up treatment TBD. I’ll be back to work here either tomorrow or not tomorrow, depending on what we find today.  Take care, and yes, your prayers are most welcome!


UPDATE: I’m home, a bit tired, and the healthiest sick person you know.  Results normal, next round of investigations TBD.  Meanwhile, blog I will.
