life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"

By George I think she’s got it!

All is well in “sparky” land!  This is what is implanted in my chest….More like a “hockey puck” in my left boob!  But it is working!  Yesterday’s S-ICD data download went very well!  No “events” ….Pulse generator at 94% and NO adjustments!  My device is working just like it is supposed to!  Does not get any better than that as far as I am concerned!  Me and my  S-ICD are part of a clinical trial so all of this gets sent to some unknown muckity-mucks as well as my round house of docs and clinicians.  I will get the official report next week when all of “team” has a chance to look  over all of the downloaded info and decide……what’s next.  This has become a fairly routine (every 9 to 12 weeks) but the first time since this thing was implanted 7 months ago that there has not been some kind of glitch or problem…technical or medical….Woo-Hoo …By George I think she’s got it!
