Been getting into the Mended Hearts organization quite a bit; will soon be blessed to visit freshly minted members of our thing should they need a peer.

Re: Inquiring minds want to know !!

Looked around and found nothing anywhere on this, so does anyone know? I have a friend that just got a BS defib, left mounted, using their remote telephony device. I have the same, though hers is a few years newer. IF we get in too close proximity, are our devices going to interfere with each other...

Re: The future of the site

I sent freckles a PM. I've got a deep background with the software, and maintain various websites for various entities. If nothing else I can provide hand-holding services, but you'll find the software is super straightforward. Make sure someone other than one person has the admin passwords and it'l...

Re: Mark 10/24

We care, we share your love, we feel your love. We're not there, but we're there -- which I'm pretty sure you understand.

Let us know what we can do.

Re: Mark Mazzo

This is so saddening. He was always there for all of us, and this light dimming is terrible news.

Re: 1st post: Background & immediate issues--husband

You're not whiny at all, for starters, and with that said don't be shy about being open about what you're feeling here. We've all been there to some degree or another. For starters from 2011 to now is pretty early in the journey, especially with that low an EF on the front end (mine was better than ...

Re: ICD and Yoga?

I love yoga, and go to class several days a week (Iyengar yoga).

Standard rules apply: If it feels wrong, stop doing it, but otherwise I wouldn't be worried about it.

Re: Need to talk, even if it is to myself.

Yeah, you're on the PTSD train bro; super common, we've all been there. In fact what's interesting is that it takes longer to get your head back in the game than your body. I know, right? But that's how it is. Advice time: - Go see your GP and get a prescription for some Xanax. S/he'll understand ri...

Re: driving job?

I put down a lot of miles, none for hire. My commute is an hour each way, and sometimes going to races or whatever it wouldn't be at all unusual to take a six-hours shift at the wheel. I'll drive an hour-and-a-half after work today to hit a BMX race. "Listen to your body" being the key here. I never...

Re: Hi, karma here, about your ICD hacking idea.....

If Barnaby Jacks intent was to get people talking about this......it seems to have worked. He probably didn't originally consider using the "die" option to make it happen tahdahh Terry But that's the thing, it wasn't to get people here talking about it, or not talking about it, we were the pawns in...

Re: Hi, karma here, about your ICD hacking idea.....

In some respect he probably will end up helping us if the manufacturer's tighten up the software, however his grandstanding to show off that he could do it should not be applauded nor appreciated. I respectfully disagree on both. His "grandstanding" was the genesis for Medtronic actually changing t...
