On 8/21/2019 a Medtronic pacemaker was embedded in my left pectoral. It has been a year of a great life and continuation of the activities to which I dedicated myself 30 plus years ago. To wit: my daily walks of 4-5 miles with my dog now at a better pace with a steady and regular heartbeat with no cardiac hiatus events. Best of all, the device has given me confidence that my journey, starting today, on my 90th circumnavigation of the Sun will be completed successfully a year from now. Thank you, Medtronic.
