Coping with your Pacer from One who has had one for 42 years

Hi everyone...
I was 8 when I recieved my first pacer....42 years later I am still here and enjoying a wonderful life.
Everyone....Please be postive...think postive and go out and take on the world. Believe me..I've had my share of ups and downs..I've had over 20 ops in my life...but truly I never let it get me down. I am married to a wonderful man,had 4 great kids and now I am the nan to 3 little girls. I have tried to do everything. Even now I still excerise and walk regularly. The only thing I have not done is much travelling which I will do now the kids are grown. We hope to visit the US.
If anyone would like some advice I would be willing to share some infor with you....Good Luck everyone with your little pacers....but you won't need it..I have always said they are one of lifes little man made miracles......
