Recovery & Granddaughter
My first PM is schedule for Nov. 1 for bradycardia. My husband and I (65 years old) watch our 4 year old granddaughter after school (2:30 to 4:30 PM) two-three days a week. My question is would I feel well enough to have her here about 2 days after the surgery? My husband would drive to go get her. My husband will be here for any lifting and other things I may not be up to doing. I figured as long as he is here it should be OK even like 2 days later. . My husband thinks we shouldn't because I would problem be tired, sore and wouldn't be able to rest, but it's only for 2 hours. She is a very calm child so it's not like we have to chase after her. So what do you all think about it? Should I tell my daughter 2-3 days after I get hom from surgery we can watch her or wait a week or two? What is the normal recovery time for getting back to your usual routine (cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc.) Thank you!

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
