I happily wear a ICD...did I just heard you say,
"To much information"??!!
Look again...ICD...Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, or even easier to explain a pacemaker.
See I have the scar to show for it ...many a airport security have seen this scar
With out my ICD my heart beats about
30 BPM, yes I know...Very S L OW,
with the cool little gadget 70 BPM!
Today, I went to the "pacer" cardiologist to have my neat little gadget checked and re-set. (because mine has to run all the time...it's little "memory card" gets full of all the work it has done)
"Bill" usually will turn off my pacer to see what my "natural" heart rate is...which will quickly make me go to sleep, today he didn't do that. I asked him why and he said, "that where I was alone and still had a 1 1/2 hour drive back home he would rather just leave it as it is"...I always wake up and am just fine...no problems staying awake or anything like that...Why NOW is he not turning it off?? On my way home I began to wonder what silly little pranks he and my husband pull on me...I have never checked for little mustaches drawn on my face or a
HUGE un-a-brow...But I will be checking in 6 months when I go back!
This is a model of the one I have implanted
