Pacer check today

Hi Everyone - Today had my PM interrogated - dislike that term, makes it sound like the PM is guilty of something, doesn't it? It is guilty of keeping me going for the past 15 months!

I am pacing 100% in the ventricle, same as 6 months ago and 54% in the atria. Last time that was 52%. It is set pretty low and I still have 5.8 years left on my pacemaker. EKG showed the pacemaker doing its thing. I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes. Thanks to everyone for this club and all the postings. It has really been a highlight of my life this last year. God bless you all.

Sharon

good to hear about your checkup. good going. hope it continues fro you. you never know about meeting. life changes. people come and go. circumstances change. i think it would be glorious to meet a few people on this site. it will happen if it is supposed to. right now too overwhelming to consider for me. right now i am into walking eating right and shedding some pounds and being able to be healthy and of course last but not least root canal. my list of ailments go on and on but none very serious thank god for small mercies. we are between john and i always at the doctors. what will happen at real old age? i don't feel old do you? like smitty says what do you see when you are looking at me. a good verse about aging. we are young trapped in older bodies. take care, jessie

How cute!

I just got this vision of this little, cute, innocent pacemaker being interrogated...like:

Interrogator: So, tell me, what have you been up to the last 6 months...and no lyin'...we've been watching you!

Pm: Please don't hurt me...I'll tell you anything you want!

Anyways...

Sounds like you are well and that is good to hear! :) I, too, love this site and am thankful for my pm and this club.

Hey Sharon: I'm glad to hear things are going well with you and your pacemaker, and thanks for the update. And I got quite a laugh out of ela-girl's little vision LOL! You speak for a lot of us when you mention how much this site has meant to you. I've never "met" a more caring, helpful, supportive group of folks and am so fond of the many friends I've made, though I don't expect I'll necessarily ever meet any of them!
Take care and happy pacing, Cathryn

A properly implanted and adjusted pacemaker will not even be noticeable after you get over the surgery.
