Hello Mrs. Briggs, most of people with Afib have fast heart rate, yours is very low which is atypical in Afib patients. It doesn't mean there must be a problem, but there's a big chance. My biggest concern is long pause of heart beat. I would suggest you take a Holter monitor, which is a 24 hour EKG. When you wear the holter monitor, you can come home, the next day you return it to the clinic. I understand you're a caregiver, in this case you don't need to stay overnight in a hospital.
