We are on our way to Akron Children’s Hospital to have Gavin’s Holter Monitor….um….. installed/attached. This will record his heart rate and rhythm for a period of 24 hours before we return the device to the hospital on Tuesday.
It may sound weird, but I’m pretty excited to have this done. This is hopefully give us a better idea of how to help Gavin.
This may be annoying for Gavin but it’s painless and just something he has to do.

Hopefully you’ll be able to get a better monitor than the one they gave me, it only held 15-20 ‘events’ before it was full, at which time it would begin beeping. I then had to ‘phone in’ the results; there was a speaker on the monitor and it had to be lined up with a speaker on the phone to transmit the data. Took about 10 minutes each time, and the damn thing screeched and screamed THE ENTIRE TIME it was transmitting. I was supposed to wear it for a month….. Yeah. That lasted about 5 days! It would literally fill up about 8 times a day, and I got so desperate for the noise to stop that I stuffed it under the couch cushions until my appointment. I hope you have better luck. Also, you should ask them for some adhesive remover packets – they are expensive as hell and work better to get the ick off from the leads on your skin.
