    Glad to hear you are recovering, Tom. May the healing powers of Foo continue to aid in getting you all better.

    Glad to hear you are a candidiate for the defib. A dear friend of mine had one put in after a major fibrilation event (big-time scary, he should have died and it is still not at all clear why he didn't). About a year later, he was in a sandwich shop and felt another fibrilation coming on. About the time he realized he was in deep shiznit, WHAM, the defib did its thing. Saved his life. That was more than five years ago, and it hasn't happened again, thank goodness, but I, for one, am damn glad he has the defib. And I'm damn glad you're getting one. From what you described, it's the best piece of prevention I can think of for you and Mrs. Stormcrowe.

    Here's to many more years.

    Still in recovery mode today. I'm still weak and tired, and still in A-Fib. It's going to be a month or so on Heparin to make sure I don't throw a clot before they cardiovert me and try to restore normal sinus rhythm in the ol' ticker. If a clot leaves the Atrium, there's only one destination.......the brain. So, while the Atrial Arrhythmia won't kill me, there are still some risks for me of a stroke. Again, no posts about this on my facebook page, please....my Mom reads that.

    As a good point, my blood chemistry is thinned enough that a clot is unlikely as of this point, and the risk is getting lower every day. Now all I have to do is recover the strength and stamina, and that won't improve a lot until I get the rhythm back to normal. We're still looking at a pacemaker, as well. I'm still being assessed as to whether it will have good efficacy for me and won't know about that for a bit yet..
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Warm thoughts your way Tom. My Mom's had a pacemaker for the last several years. She's had to contend with A-fib since she was a child (genetic). She's now 83 and leading a normal life. I'm sure you'll be back on the tiller soon enough.

    We need to compare notes,Tom. I will be getting a consult in two weeks where I expect they will recommend a defib. In the meantime, my last echo revealed that I have a clot as well. So far, I have talked them out of Coumadin because I am on daily aspirin and plavix.

    My friends are requesting a remote control for the defib. They seem to think giving me a good shock would be great for parties.
