Got this for Christmas. First ever Lego assembly for me. It took about a day to put it all together. There is a lot of gears and levers underneath the exterior. The paddles rotate and the smoke stacks go up and down. This is a representation of the boat in Mikey’s first cartoon from 1928.
This has been my story for the last three weeks. Pacemaker placement went quite well and I have no issues other than the fact that I now have a bump on my left chest where I can feel the pacemaker. On the other hand some issues caused a few Pulmonary Embolisms to occur which once they were discovered were quickly treated with blood thinner. Does seem to be something that will reoccur so I’m good there but it really made the last two weeks painful I did a lot of sleeping so that was good. Now starting to mend and feeling better. Enough so to do a little Photoshop compositing.
Three weeks post op and the fog is starting to dissipate.
Just realized that I never put up the dragon photo to go with the Dragon on the Roof post. So I fixed that. I am finally starting to recover from some slight complications from the pacemaker implant. Nothing that is life threatening now but sure felt like it over the last weekend. I’m all wired and tired and ready to become human again. And I don’t think I know glow in the dark.
Just after the 4th of July I noticed that my heart rate had dropped by one third. Yesterday I had a pacemaker put in. At the moment I am starting to overcome the pain which felt a lot like getting kicked in the chest by a horse. It will take at least 4 weeks to heal and I should be back to normal (what ever that is). My doctor (Ken W Lee MD) was very excited afterwards saying that he found the problem and was able to get my heart back to normal rhythm. So I’m sore but healing. I just can’t use my left arm much for a while until the pacemaker leads are firmly attached to the inside walls of my heart.
I was away for a couple of days or maybe two or three years.
