Hello Friends,
Today is 1 year since I had my pacemaker put in. I read some of you celebrate that day and I think it is a good idea. I believe without that devise I would not be here today, so it is a day to think about what my life has been about this year and what I am making it. I wish I could say I live every day to the full but I do not; however, I think I appreciate life more than I did. I revieved a gift this morning from my family of a small stuffed bear who has a pacemaker!


Happy Birthday!

I would say one year is a milestone. After the shock of needing a pm and having the time to realize that you may not be around without it and how precious life is. Celebrate, and best wishes!

Happy Birthday

Happy 'pacemaker' Birthday for yesterday. Love the idea of a bear with a pacemaker - what a great gift :-)
