Strange Beginning To 2020

To say that 2020 was strange is an understatement. It started out with my having ventricular tachycardia. I went to the ER and instead of shocking my heart back into rhythm, they used a drug that stopped my heart for a few seconds. That was not an experience that I would care to repeat. After, I had that episode, I scheduled an appointment with my cardiologist at Vanderbilt. This visit was right before a scheduled trip to Mexico. The cardiologist did not want me going on the trip before he performed a heart ablation. The ablation was scheduled on the 10th and everything went so well that they let me go home that night. Five hours after the ablation, I was having dinner with my family in Brentwood. Our trip was scheduled for March 14th so we left on the 14th and arrived in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. We had a beautiful boat ride from Cancun to the island and arrived on a beautiful sunny Saturday. The accommodations were perfect and we even had two ladies who came in and fixed breakfast for us every day. However, we were monitoring what was going on with the pandemic and decided that the news was getting worse so on Tuesday, we left the island to go back to Nashville. On the way to the boat, the taxi driver told us that Mexico was shutting everything down on Friday. Good thing we made the call to go back home.
