A few days back, I gave an overview of my wife's adventures with V-V. Thank you for your comments.

Yesterday we met with an expert on arythmia. As expected, he wants Janet to have the tilt test. He felt that based on her syptoms, she's prime candidate for V-V. She will take the test on the 14th. The hardest part now is the wait for confirmation, and the loss of freedom----she feels trapped within the house---her internist has barred her from driving and leaving the house on her own.
