Good, I guess

The problem with feeling pretty good most of the time? When I have noticeable a-fib symptoms, I have forgotten what they feel like! Laid down for a nap & when I got up I felt my heart racing, was slightly short of breath, felt sort of shaky...Started to get uneasy & then I realized that I used to feel this way a lot more often! 


Yes, good!

Good for sure

It probably does us good to get the occasional reminder of what the pacemaker is doing for us, so that we can be properly grateful.

You know you're wired when...

You have an excuse for gaining an extra ounce or two.
