We just returned from the doctor for routine check on the device, the wound and my blood pressure.
The new lead is still anchored in the proper place so the device is humming. I feel better than I’ve felt in three years (while is was only partially working). The wound is healing nicely. Interestingly, they go in via the same incision every time there’s work to do on the pacemaker/defibrillator. I asked how many times they could do that – “'bout a million" was the answer.
My blood pressure is back to normal. It was very high and the meds gave me problems. So I flushed the pills and started walking. I’ve managed to walk a mile almost every day since the surgery two weeks ago. Boring, but it does the job.
It’s a beautiful, crisp, sunshiny day in Texas. So we went to Cisco’s for migas.
Hell yes, it’s on my diet.
