    Re: New device for me~

    Lisa, I am so glad to hear everything went so well!

    I am especially interested in learning more about "those meds" because Andrew is one of those guaranteed to vomit EVERY time he has anesthesia too! He also has a VERY hard time waking up. It even delayed his release after his ICD implant. He was kept overnight because of all the vomitting and lethargy. His last CareLink Monitor check on Monday showed his "Ever Ready Battery" continues to hang in just above the change out level!

    Again, glad to hear you are home and there were no complications! Take it easy for a while now!

          Lisa,

          I was just wondering how you're feeling, since you got your new device a couple weeks ago. Are you still sore?

          Hope all is going well for you.

          Debbie

            Hello all, I too am having a new I.C.D. implanted on Nov. 18, 2004. My battery has run down, the alarm scared the devil out of me. I never heard it before, so imagine my surprise!
            Hello, I`m Craig, I have H.O.C.M. and I`m making the most of my life with my daughter and my wife!!!
