thank you

Yesterday I posted my first message after recieving a Medtronic pm, dual chamber, last week. I've some problems and lots of anxiety and fears and it was so nice to hear from people who deal with the same issues and who have been there. This site and those who use it have been a blessing to me, my wife and family. I hope to return the favor.

Hello Rusty,

How are you and your family doing? I also have a dual chamber pacemaker, I got it when I was 28 and this pacer seem to be working really good. I'm glad to hear your spirits are high. This site is very good for advice. I'll be around if you need me Buddy. God bless you and I hope you and your family have a bunch of blessings on the way. Take care and see ya later.


Glad you found us

I am always so happy when I read the posts of people ,like me, who when in a very scary time, was able to find comfort through such caring peole with whom I have never even met in person. I know how you feel as does everyone on here. Thats the great thing about this site,and I think Blake knew that there wasa viod in that area and knew he could fill it. I don't really think he REALLY knows how many lives he has affected. As you stated it isn't just pm recipients but also their friends and family members too. In my case it was my husband that searched for this site and now I come hear every day. Either to ask a question ,see how others are doing that I feel have become my friends, or see if I can give any advice to those new arrivals. I wish you the best in your recovery and hope you find all the comfort I have and get any answers that your docs may not give you. Another thing too, I sometimes think there is more knowledge here than with a single doctor. So take care ,and happy pacing.
Truly, your "strange" friend,
