PM's yield instant bond?

Hi folks. Just had to tell you about a neat experience I had Friday. I was at the Seattle airport leaving town and just completed the TSA security pat-down, sitting in the chair putting my shoes back on. I looked to my right, and there was a man also putting his shoes back on. He smiled and asked why I had the pat down. I told him I have a PM, and he broke into a big grin and said "Me too!" We shook hands, introduced ourselves, exchanged PM implant dates and brief stories, even showed each other our PM sites (his looks way better than mine). The whole things lasted only a couple minutes, but he clasped my hand warmly and said he was happy to have met his Sister-in-Pacing as we went our separate ways. I was so happy to have met my first real-live, in person, person with a PM! I'm touched and amused by how this little device can bring people together in this way. Take care, Cathryn

Cathryn - Thank you for your posting. Isn't it amazing when you meet someone as you did in the Seattle airport? I always call these "God things"; they just happen for no reason that we can see, but leave an imprint on our lives.

sweet story

I had to smile as I read your story because it really isa so true. We are uniquely "connected" through this little device that keeps us seeing the next days sunrises. I had a little different story but still sweet all the same. My grandmother is 88 yrs old,89 in July, she recieved a pacemaker when I was 16. I was with her spending quality time in Boston going through the city. It started to rain and we had to hurry it up from the bus stop.She didn't feel well and I immediately told her we were calling for help. At the time she smoked and she gave me her cigerattes. I, being as I was told her she realised who she was giving them to ( because she knew no matter what I would not give them back, even at 16.) She had mjor surgery as she had suffered a massive heartattack and they took a vien from her leg to help with the surgery. Anyway,she has gone through a few surgeries sense then and I have been at her side asking all the questions I could. Then it was my turn. Funny how though I asked the questions as soon as I was faced with this I lost all thoughts of the knowleedge I had gained.lol.My grandmother was there to help me along. We are closer than even before as we are both the bionic women in our families. Our family kids I take after my grandmother (as` with being head strong and tough) and now we both are pacers.We also joke we have the most expensive bodies in the family.We are the bionic woman of the family and no one can touch that. Something no one else in the family can completely understand as far as the bond.My first real live person meeting with a pm was my Nana. We are truly together in pacing and she says she was blessed to have me that day to get her help but I am blessed to have her here because of the pm and now I am going through the same things she did. One feels so blessed to be given extra days on this earth .Thanks for the pm ,this site and those of you who have given me strength through all this.
Truly, your "strange" friend,
Susan

Give Nanna a big hug!!
