    De-fib post-op

    Yesterday was my post-op exam for my ICD.

    I came away with both Good News & Bad News.

    The Good News first: The doctors determined the batteries in my ICD would last for 7 - 10 years,

    the Bad News they couldn't tell me how long I would last!

    This has me wondering "What kind of doctors are they?" (LOL)

    Actually, the team of doctors were the best that anyone could hope for! They each were rewarded with a "One-of-a-Kind" pen.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Good for you Mack. Now all you have to do is prove the battery warranties are good for about 5 sets of batteries.

    Neat that you gave the docs pens.

    Enjoy,

    Great 'good news'

    Not sure if I'd want to know on the 'bad news', I have trouble enough walking a straight line as it is
