I'm a straight shooter, meaning I'd like to get right into it. Well, one day I was at a local Dollar General, and my heart totally stopped. I stayed in the hospital for nearly a month, and on three of those days, I was on a ventilator. I woke up with a defibrillator. Now it thumps a lot, and I don't know why.
I was wondering, does anybody else's defibrillator thump like that? I haven't received the bedside monitor that I requested in September. I was told it's on backorder. Has anyone else experienced this? Most of my days are now lived in fear of not doing the right thing. My diet is good. I'm afraid to lift and laugh too hard. Walking wears me out more than ever.
