Now A Two Pacemaker Family
In previous posts I wrote that I was implanted with a pacemaker in February of this year for second degree heart block. On May 15, my wife had an attack of ventricular tachycardia where her heart rate went to 210 bpm and she was rushed to the hospital. After a heart cath, it was determined she needed a pacemaker/defribulator to control the v-tach.
It has been nearly two weeks since the implant and she is doing very well (probably better than I am) and we hope to resume our "normal" daily routines.
If someone had told us in January of this year that we would both have pacemakers by May, we would have said you were nuts; but it has happened and we are grateful the technology exists to correct our heart defects.....
Thank you for this website as it has been very useful to both of us...Blnmakerr
