    Hola to everybody again from the good ol TX [​IMG] . As a couple of you know from my thread-jack ( sorry B ) I have quite a few health problems and was released from Medical City in Dallas a mere 2 weeks ago. Well, I was released on a Wed., and was re-admitted after passing out on Saturday. For four days, I got the vibe that nobody believed what I was feeling. I was light headed, disoriented, dizzy, and felt really cold like somebody pumped ice water through my veins. I could hear my heart, and it was so loud, that it seemed to drown out any other noise.

    Long story short, when they admitted me, they put me on a telemetry floor. Telemetry is where you wear leads that moniter your heart function via some wireless network. On Wednesday, I woke up with the exact same feeling, then was out cold.

    I woke up some time later that night, and discovered that when I felt bad, my heartrate fell from the 110 resting rate, to 40, then stopped. They had to proceed with cpr, and later relied on a defib...something. Basically those things that shock the sh*t out of you. Once I was revived, and somewhat steady, they proceeded to install a pacemaker. Then a few days later, they threw me back into this outside world.

    So that was my fun week [​IMG] , How was everybody else?

    eeek. Well, a Pacemaker isn't so bad anymore - They don't just operate on one speed. You should check out all the advances in pacemaking they are working on.

    And they hit you with one of my favorite inventions, the Defribulator.

    Is it possible for us to an xaero RSS feed ?

    Glad to hear you are ok!! I bet that is some scary shit, knowing at one point you were...well...dead. How old are you, if you don't mind? Because regardless, I'm going to call you old because you have a pacemaker!! [​IMG] I always put pacemakers and fogeys together!!

    I think he's something like 19, much like ourselves. That really sucks man, and a 110 resting rate?!?! Wow, that's fast. My resting heart rate is below 60, I'm pretty sure. When I got my wisdom teeth removed, they hooked my up to the machine and my resting heart rate was setting off the machine, so they had to turn the volume off, lol. Glad to hear your going ok though! :thumbsup:

    I remember hearing a reference about you in a post a while back. Hope you are healing alright. I crashed, broke a collar bone, then got staph infection in my calf and was in the ER on Christmas, and that's nothing compared to the beating you are taking. You are in my prayer journal bro.
