What? You didn't know I was bionic?

Today I had an appointment with my surgeon to check my incision and to ensure that my ICD is working correctly. While there, I was offered the chance to use a new product to check my device from home. It's so weird. It's kind of a modem, where you plug a box into the phone connection, then place the magic antenna over the device, turn it on, and it sends impulse readings from my chest to the hospital.

I don't have the machine yet, as they send it to me via mail and it should arrive in a couple of weeks. But I have to say, I'm kind of interested in trying it. Something about holding a mouselike antenna over my chest and having it send messages to the hospital kinda strikes my funny bone.

Who said I wasn't special? :-)

Of course you're special. ;)

I could swear I remember my Grandmother calling the doctor's office and sticking the phone on her chest. But then again, she was a bit senile in her last few years.

Michele sent me back.
