I received my phone call this morning from the pacemaker department. Generally, it was a good call. I have thirteen months left on my pacemaker battery. Fluid levels are fine. Leads are stable. No critical incidents recorded.
I did have “one little blip”. On December 28th, around 10:30 p.m., my heart began to race uncontrollably for three seconds before settling back down. This doesn’t happen very often (generally around three times a year) and usually returns to a regular rate without intervention. What’s weird is that it has always happened around the same time of night and after I was already sleeping. Very, very, very strange.
But, all told, things are looking good and I have two more data dump checks before seeing my cardiologist for my next appointment in March so if any more occur, he may want to run some tests, change a medication, or something. I don’t know. I’m not a cardiologist. I’m just the patient. 🙂
