Because I realized, via Chris' comment, that not everyone read my "About Me" on the old site, I should explain my last post. Not that I expected everyone to read it, but did realize I'd need to explain so as not to freak any more of my readers out.
This is not the original pacemaker surgery, but a replacement for the one that was inserted in 1996. I have a congenital heart problem that caused two open-heart surgeries before I was 8 years old and my pacemaker was put in when I was 26. I don't mind talking about it, and assumed that most of my readers knew about it. But you know what they say when you assume. ;-)
