  • ICD pac change

    Finally, received the new battery pack on Friday. Doing fine. A little sore of course. I do have to go back in 1 month as they need to put me under again to test it as had some trouble on Friday and used the external paddles on me. They assure me it will work now. (Yeah right). One month that is the longest we have gone since 2003. Things are looking up. The colon surgeon dismissed me, and I now have huge brace for my foot instead of a cast. Still on crutches. Am off hold for the heart transplant. So things are improving. Thanks everyone

            I was just catching up with all of the messages and couldn't help but say at how IRONIC Sarah's post was! Just so happened that was the day I was admitted to the hospital for my gallbladder. So that's it! It was Sarah's fault she jinxed me I hope all is going well for you Midge keep your head up!

            I have to ask what is the bowling refrence from? Not much of a movie buff.
