Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...

"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

"Within the pages of Beat Your A-Fib, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, provides a comprehensive guide for persons seeking to find a cure for their Atrial Fibrillation."

On a Personal Note: Malibu Fires and Mandatory Evacuation

Due to the spreading brush fires heading toward the Pacific shoreline, Patti and I evacuated our home Friday noon under mandatory order for all in the City of Malibu, CA.

Fanned by the roaring “Santa Ana winds”, we had been smelling the fires since early morning when we got an automated call to prepare to evacuate. We lost power mid-morning. The air was filled with soot and ashes and covered our patio and steps. We wore filter masks.

Time to Go: Billowing grey clouds rolled out over the ocean. Fires lit up the crests of the hills off Pacific Coast Hwy (CA#1). What sounded like rain drops on the car roof were actually airborne ash bits.

We were heading south to the evacuation center at the Pacific Palisades high school. We didn’t make it.

About 2 miles from our home (before we got to Zuma Beach and the Pt. Dune area) we encountered smoke across the road and with flames on both sides. So we turned around and headed north instead. Since Friday noon, we’ve been tucked away safely at a motel in Oxnard about 30 miles north/west of Malibu.

Surfing for News: Every few hours we check TV news coverage, online video footage, official city/county emergency websites and social media posts for any news about the area around our home. As best we can tell, the fires reported at Pt. Dune and Trancas Canyon are the closest at about 4 miles south/east.

Based on TV news aerial footage from Sunday morning, we are optimistic the fires have not reached our home and it will still be there when we are allowed back in.

Blessings upon our firefighters

Our Thanks to First Responders: Blessings to the firefighters and police all working to protect our homes, as well as those staffing the evacuation centers ranging from Thousand Oaks to Santa Monica. (Including special centers sheltering animals including horses, llamas, dogs, etc.).

Please pray (and send out positive thoughts) for those who have lost everything. No matter your income level, it’s still devastating.

We’re still writing and posting to from our motel room. We’ll update when we have news about returning to our home, God willing.
