Dear Guin, Hope you have a wonderful, healthy, happy birthday. I haven't really been in touch with the group much this year but I always remember people like you who were around for me early on. I miss our early days on here. Happy, happy birthday. Love, Helen

Re: OT - Need some honesty

I rarely get out to meet and listen to friends or family anymore and then I'm mad when they all seem to be doing things without me... Some days I say ok, I hate my life and the "golden years" suck. Theres always ...

Re: What happens with our devices when we loose too much weight

Hi Chrissie, Years ago we used to have a contest in this group for the best looking ICD implant... I won it one year (or came in second....no memory cells working lately). You could hardly see it years ago. This year I was in the hospital and sick a few times and I lost about 35 pounds. Now my ICD l...

EVE-- Gone but not forgotten

I'm sure there are still a few old-timers who remember Eve... Today would have been her birthday.. She was a fantastic woman and one of the first 10 members in this group. I actually met Eve in another ICD group which we both left with a few other people. She was a great help and a wonderful inspira...

Well sure I guess some is but I have had every memory loss stated ...

Re: Where do we go from here

Chrissy, I just wrote 2 messages to you and they both disappeared toward the very ends... so now I'll try to get in the important words before they disappear. Chrissy, I NEED YOU, I love you and I pray you hang around for a long time.. Helen

Re: amiodarone

Unfortunately I'm not pregnant.... if I was I'd at least know that I've had some fun this year. Anyway, back to amiodarone, I don't like a lot of things I've heard about it but I really don't have much choice at my age. I have never had A shock... I always have SHOCK STORMS ... at least 6 at a time....
