TAKING A BREAK


Well it seems there was a sale on pacemakers and I just had to get one.

The heart monitor I was wearing determined I had a sick sinus syndrome also known as (tachy-brady syndrome ).  Once he was sure, my doctor put me in the hospital the next day for a pacemaker.

I had a bit of trouble with the original placement of the pacemaker and I was getting spasmodic muscles jerks as it was shocking me in the back. Not painful, just like a really bad case of the hiccups. They went back in to realigned the leads the next day and now all I have to do is recover.  I am rather sore but healing.

I will have medication that will need adjusting to and multiple doctor visits but should be back annoying you soon enough.

Till then however I may not stop by your blogs on a regular basis but  I will be back visiting you all soon. Bear with me.

Don't write too much good stuff  while I am gone. Take care and be well.

  2. I will try really hard not to write anything too earth shaking while you're recovering, Patti. I too am glad they figured out what was going on. In return, I'll ask you to try to get well quickly and come back to me! :-)

  10. I'm so thankful to read that they found out what was wrong. Now we are heart sisters. I also have sick sinus syndrome. That is why I got my pacemaker. I'm sorry the leads had to be redone. Really sorry! Get your rest. I found it took me a while to adjust to the pacemaker and was very anxious in the first week because of the jolts I would feel. Take care of yourself. Don't reach your left hand over your head. Listen to your doctor. Speak up if things seems off. Also, email me if you need to talk. I'm here. God Bless! You are in my prayers.

  28. Glad to hear everything is going well for you except for a few minor tune ups to the thingy you'll be wearing. My heart doctor said they could shock my heart and get it back into rhythm, but at my age, chances are it wouldn't stay and then I would have chest pain all the time. So I told him, I've had this irregular heart beat since I was about 30, and no doctor had ever mention A fib before. So I take medicine and live with it. Most of the time, I'm not even aware of it. Now Abe's doesn't seem to do it all the time, he has what I call attacks where it acts up. We both take the same medicine, just different dosage, to prevent blood clots, since if the heart isn't pumping properly it can cause the blood to pool at the top of the heart and make a clot which is very dangerous. I haven't been on my blog like usual. First in April, I got shingles, then in May I got pneumonia. Now I am trying to rest and catch up with things. You hang in there and take care of yourself.

  30. All the best to you Patti. Sale on tech for tickers in the chest is just like you. Gotta love the humour even in more serious moments. Am sending gentle positive vibes for your rest and recovery so you can blog more of your goodies soon.

  31. Wishing you a quick recovery! It's good that the doctors have been able to figure out what needed to be done. My uncle has had a pacemaker for many years. He's over 80 and golfs 3-4 times a week. Obviously those hi-tech gadgets work well.

    See you soon.

  32. My brother-in-law has had one for years, and does just fine with it. In fact it is a bit of a hoot when they call him to recalibrate it and he puts the phone to just below his clavicle and they phone it in...

    Wishing you only good things. Blessed be.

  33. I am absent from blogging but happened to peek in this morning and read of your troubles. Thoughts and prayers with you and I know you will thrive and survive in excellent condition. Maybe we both can get back to blogging again at about the same time.
