a little exercise

Yesterday, for the second time, we took a short walk around the block. Ray commented that he is not quite ready to join the ramblers.

We wondered who had the first pacemaker and we found this information:

The first pacemaker was implanted in a person in 1958.
The patient lived to age 88.
He had 26 pacemakers in his lifetime.
Hope Ray sticks to just the one and exceeds 88. Good to see him looking so chipper

He is doing well. How technology has changed since 1958! I have two brothers-in-law in NZ with pacemakers and one of them is monitored from Boston!

How lovely to see him out and about! Pacemakers are amazing things and they get better all the time.

Hi Ray! Keep well and don't over do it. You don't want to have another 25 pacemakers!

Keep him moving, if you have any influence Hazel! :-) What happens of he doesn't use a pacemaker ? (I feel I have missed a thread here, but you can help me catch up if you don't mind)

David my story starts on my post of 16th Jan (purple clematis, sorry don’t know how to refer you direct on my iPad). Today Ray got his discharge letter from the hospital and the situation was more scary than I realised. He had complete (third degree) heart block and could have had a cardiac arrest. His blood pressure had a top figure of over 200 and his heart rate was only 30. After he had the op to fit a pacemaker he was home for 2 days when he started feeling ill again and was taken by ambulance to hospital for tests. Thankfully he is having a siesta on the sofa here right now and we hope he will carry on being OK. A big shock.

Nice photo keep strong ime sure he will get lots of loving care with you at his side:)

What an incredibly scary experience for both of you - hope he's continuing on the road to recovery.

So happy to see Ray looking so well. Hope you and Ray just take it easy and rest and relax. Slow and steady wins the race.
