Down -112 lbs, Feeling awesome...But now a pacemaker

Rate this Entry
Doing great. Had a little setback last month though. I had to have a pacemaker put in. This was due to a bout of MRSA I had gotten during spinal surgery back in late 2008. Apparently it got to the nerve that controls heart rate. My bpm was getting down in the mid to low 40's. Now its a min of 70bpm. I feel like a new man. Every morning I'm out in the garden or working in the garage...Feeling just awesome.
