Apologies for the slight haitus in blogging, but as the title suggests I've been somewhat pre-occupied after experiencing heart failure ! ..... how scary is that ! ....believe me that answer is VERY ! Having been diagnosed with something called ' sick sinus syndrome' I have now got a pacemaker fitted, which is very weird and is taking some getting used to. However, I have found the postings on the PacemakerClub website quite re-assuring, if not a little disconcerning at times.
