I know I havent been here much lately..I have been reading everyday to see how everyone is.
I just want to say that I think you all are the most courageous group of people,some of you seem to get kicked and just get right back up..something im trying to do right now..my husband got shocked yesterday(it was not a hard one at least)but its been almost 6 months and it feels like starting all over again with the emotions.....I just needed to tell someone I guess :( ,he doesnt want me telling the kids because its Christmas...anyway im sorry i kinda got off track ..I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas...and a very Happy and Healthy New year.... :xmaswav:

Karen,

You get off track anytime you like. As you know we don't judge here and will never stop anyone from expressing their true feelings about their life and an ICD. Sorry to hear about your husbands shock, but the upside is he is here to know that he got shocked. I know that doesn't seem like great holiday comfort, but I know how he feels and maybe the holiday with the kids and family may make him a bit more relaxed. You and your husband and kids have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. :tree:

Hi Karen, I agree with Mark... If someone were to ask one of us, "would you rather be dead or have a shock which lasts for a few seconds and live and enjoy Christmas?"... what do you think the answer would be? No question, right? Anyway, the shock was in the past and the present has your husband being protected today and so are you... I hope you, your husband and children have a wonderful Christmas...and I wish all the rest of us the same...with peace, joy and love, Helen[/b]

Merry Christmas. Life can be very tough but the other option is certainly worse. Just remeber the smile that you will see at Christmas. Post some here.

Be well!

Well yes, the holidays can add stress, it can be sad times, but for us with the ICD and their loved ones there seems a great chance of tomorrow being a better day!

My we all enjoy the holidays, have a healthy new year!
