Well I went for my pacemaker check today at my cardiologist and found that my battery is low and has been for a while. I missed an appt in early January due to a funeral and was slow on rescheduling. They want to get the pacemaker replaced asap. I was supposed to call this morning to talk with the scheduler, but the woman also told me if I feel “weird” just go to the hospital. Well I have been feeling weird on and off for the last few weeks. And Friday I had a moment where I felt like I was going to pass out. Having a chronic heart problem, I’m used to having “off” days so I wasn’t terribly alarmed.
I am 100% pacemaker dependant, so without it I have no heart beat at all. Anyway I have not been able to sleep because of my heart beat feeling really weird and now that I know what it is, I think fear that my pacemaker will stop working while I’m asleep is adding to that. So in a couple hours I’m just going to have my hubby take me to the hospital. I’ll feel safer being where they can keep an eye on me til the pacemaker is changed.
So…if you could send up some prayers for a smooth go of things, I’d appreciate it.
