  • Feeling good!

    I got my AICD replaced on March 21st and I was so tired that first week. I felt light headed when I'd get up and was starting to get worried. On the Sun 6 days after my surgery I got up and tried to go to the mall, but I couldn't stay because I was dizzy and tired. So, I went home and went to bed. I was worried because the next day I had to go back to work ( I teach 5th grade.... ) I got up Monday morning and went to school and have felt great ever since! I go this Monday for a check up and to interrogate my new device. I'm not worried about the appt though because I've felt great! So, that's just a little update on me! Hope everyone is doing good! Only 5 wks. to summer!!! Yeah!

      Glad to hear you're doing well. Surgery can take a lot out of you, and be more of a recovery than you think, sometimes, huh?

      I hope your days get better and better!
