How I became a cyborg
It all started back in december of 07.My employer gives a wellness screening test once a year. I figured what the heck its free so im in.All went well except blood pressure was 160/100.The lady that checked me suggested i go see my family doctor
A few days later here I am in dr office.Shes listens to my heart and says shes going to run a ekg to be safe .She says not to worry.Too late already am. I just came for some blood pressure pills doc.So i had the ekg and went back in docs office to wait for results.She comes in 5 minutes later and said Ive had an old heart attack.Dont remember having one. Now im really worried. Doc sends me to have stress test and echo. I thought i passed but these docs didnt like what they saw so I was sent for heart cath.Now im really worried.So worried i think im going to have a heart attack that I would remember.
Well had the heart cath and sure enough it showed Ive had a heart attack before.Amazing pictures
Well here I am laying on my back for 4 to 6 hours to let the cath hole close when still yet another doc comes in and said the part of my heart that died throwed my heart out of rhythm and just pumping at 30-35%.doc suggested ICD to prevent SCD.SO on 1/21/08 got me a CRT-D and a few weeks off from work.
Since Ive had my ICD Ive used my weedwhacker, chainsaw,woodsplitter,riding mower and tractor and backhoe.
Not been 6 months yet and already thankful i have my little buddy. He makes me feel safe.
You know you're wired when...
Titanium is your favorite metal.
My pacemaker has ultimately saved mine and my unborn childs life for which I am thankful.
