pacemaker

My father's heart has suddenly stopped beating normally. Pacemaker installation at the crack of dawn Tuesday. Prayers, positive thoughts, much appreciated. Not ready for him to go anywhere.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

A colleague at work just went through the pacemaker, and is doing terrific, back to a full schedule.

I hope everything goes well. My father in law is 100% dependent on his pacemaker, and he is able to be very active (he's 67). I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

Keeping all digits crossed and thinking about you today. The good news is that they are doing so well with treating older patients with these types of procedures.

Oh jeez. Much love to you. My Dad worked in the pacemaker industry for YEARS (my family owned a company that distributed pacemakers for a major company), so this heart stuff was dinner-table-talk for my entire life. If you have any questons, I"d be happy to put you in touch with somebody who is very familiar. My best friend also works in this industry.

Pacemakers are amazing. This is scary, but it's the best possible outcome given what happened. A defibb can extend life by decades sometimes.

To put your mind at rest, pacemakers are incredible pieces of reliable equipment. My mother in law, rest her soul, lived ten years beyond her time because of that pacemaker. And we enjoyed every added moment with her!

Keeping you and yours in our very best thoughts. My younger brother had a pacemaker installed (untreated Lyme disease) and is a-okay. Hope your father does as well.

Good thoughts for you, sweetheart. I've been through this scare twice (once with each parent), so I know what you're dealing with right now -- lots of healing energy your way ...

I, too, know several men with pacemakers who have lived long, vigorous lives thanks to them.

Reiki and hugs your way! Let us know how it goes...
