    No wories mates! I have atrial fibrillation too, it’s not really that big a deal. Three different possibilities: electro-cardioversion, where they shock you back into rhythm, or cauterizing the central tissue of the heart through the artery, outpatient treatment only, or just leaving it alone and using only medication to treat or regulate the heartbeat and thickness of the blood. Most of us eventually, are just put on medication after afew cardioversion treatments. Again not that big a deal.

    yo mate! thanks for the 411 but in Coach Harbaugh’s case he be yelling week in week out. Very emotional guy with his players, coaches, and refs. Just watch him on game days and I can imagine he does the same in practice.

    Take care Jim. I’m pretty sure I remember coach Ditka saying you were the toughest player he ever coached………..but I know you’ll listen to the docs. Gina and I wish you the best!

    i believe the procedure is what i had. they put you out and use a defilibrator not sure of the spelling, most of time only takes 1-2jolts to get the heart beating normally. if this is it he should be allowed to go home this evening. good luck coach JH
