Recovering

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.

Slight Complications

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.

Chocolate Processing

Any place that has facilities for batch processing vast quantities of chocolate is a good place to be in my book. The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at City Walk Universal Studios Orlando

Speed Limits

I once posted on my birthday that I had just reached the speed limit of 55. That was 15 years ago. Do you know what that means? I’ve been blogging for over 15 years. Now I’ve reached another speed limit but not one that appears to be limiting.
