Secret Mommyhood Confession Saturday #35

When I was at my cardiologist appointment on Thursday morning, I saw this pasted up at reception.


Amusing isn't it?

I confess -  I got to thinking....

How come my pacemaker doesn't do anything cool like that?

It should access Twitter, or at least play some funky music that only I can hear blasted straight into my brain waves.

OK... so I guess making my heart beat all day and night every day and night is "doing something cool."

But still...

It connects to a computer to get the little print outs of all the things it keeps track of.  Do you know that it keeps track of every time my heart goes above 170 bpm (which is the upper limit it can go)?  Yeah... so the doctors pretty much know when I'm having... er... se.... you get the idea. Because really, who works out at midnight?  Lovely.

If it keeps track of information like that, why can't it keep track of the appointment I have next week? Or when important birthdays are coming up?  It could send a message right to my brain and I'd never forget anything!

Of course, knowing my luck, they'd install Windows on that sucker and then I'd be doomed. Loaded with viruses and ads for Viagra would just pop into my head at inappropriate times when I'm trying to drive or make dinner or something. (Really when is an ad for Viagra popping into your head appropriate?)

Maybe I oughta rethink this...

(P.S. - my appointment went amazingly. My right ventricle has shrunk down to normal size! Because of that, the holes are undetectable and my valve is working without leaking.  I don't have to go back for 2 years!  That has never before happened in my entire 35 years on this planet. 2 Years! :D :D


I'm sharing my confession over at All Work and No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something.  Share yours?
