My pacemaker is healing nicely. It has been a weird journey…I have passed out a total of 4 times since the install. It gives me more of a warning when I do pass out and it allows me to get to the ground. I have had a few days that I call “POTSY” in which I just don’t feel right and almost that feeling of when you haven’t slept in a long time and are coming down with some sort of illness, but it’s just my POTS. I am used to it nowadays. I can figure out what is my normal and what is not. I did call the cardiologist last week because my pacemaker was burning and feeling as if it was trying to get out of my skin…but, all is well. I think I just had used my left arm more than I was supposed to. Oops. Great news is that my wheelchair ramp should be coming in soon…because I still blackout when I stand it looks like I will still be in a wheelchair…I can’t afford another concussion. UGH. That’s sucks, but BUZZ is doing a great job…he hasn’t solved all my issues but he has done a great job. He is still giving me hope which is way more than I had last month. I totally fell off the wagon. I am back drinking diet soda as if I never stopped. Man that’s so hard. It tastes soooo good to me. I hate the taste of the regular soda and my body CRAVES the deliciousness of the diet soda. Ohh well, someday I will stop for good, but not today as I stare at my 20 ounce. LOL. I was rocking my gray hairs for a long time, they looked fine in my opinion but they drove Joshua nuts and so, I dyed my hair. It looks alright. I just hate that I am going to have to dye my hair forever because I went gray so early in life. O well. There are bigger issues in the world right? Big news, today we are going to try to go grocery shopping. Whoo hoo. I am starving, The one thing the pacemaker does is allows me to eat like a normal human being, which is horrible because I eat…and eat…LOL. I used to get nauseated when I’d eat, and now I don’t…so I over eat…a lot. I have to be aware of how much I consume for one of the first times EVER.
