Re: ICD charging cycle

Furrybeast said: My next office interrogation is 11 months away, so I guess I won't know for sure until then if it was actually an aborted charging cycle. I don't get why this doesn't seem to bother anyone else as much as it bothers me. Our doctors only see us once or twice a year for 15 minutes eac...

Mark Mazzo

I am so very sorry to be the bearer of these news. Mark Mazzo's wife wanted us to know that Mark is now on life support. His heart has gotten too weak to carry on and they are trying to follow his wishes and make the difficult decision to let him go. Mark and his generous spirit have been a force an...

Re: Drinking and ICD/heart

Scotch whiskey seems to put me in a-fib. Happened twice. Wine is not good for me either.
