The ticker is ticking....differently

So quick update on the drug trial. Yesterday I had my next set of EKG and Echocardiogram. The Echo was fine, but apparently my EKG came back with new developments. From what I understand the EKG measures the electronic pulses that the heart sends out, and mine has changed some so that the end of the heart beat has a different little kick in it. So this means another EKG to make sure it wasn't the machine, or me scratching my leg during the testing. :0) In general they think everything is fine.
Today at the appointment they took more blood to measure my liver function (a known side effect of the drug) as well as gave me a full physical. So far I haven't seen any side effects.
