We have a ton of doctoring this week. Prescription pickups Monday went well. Today's appointment with my cardiologist went well also but I have to go in Thursday morning to get a defibrillator installed in my chest.
This is not a fun decision to have to make. I'm reading up on ICDs so I can be as informed as possible. Until now, I haven't thought about sudden cardiac death, but my cardio team opened my eyes to the reality of it all.
I could live another thirty days to three years without the ICD. I don't like those odds very much. With the ICD I should have at least another ten years. I like those odds much better.
I am already fairly certain what my decision will be. I just need to hear from the surgeon who will perform the procedure before I say yes or no.
Wish me luck, think those good thoughts and keep me in your prayers, please.
