name-my-pacemaker contest

I need a name for this thing. I am sick of writing:

pacemaker

or

pacer

or

my little device

or some such crap. Some of you probably think the solution to that is for me to just stop writing about it. I will consider that. But in the meantime I would like to come up with a name for this little Medtronic Adapta that suits me. Anyone care to submit ideas? If your name is chosen it will land you a $20 gift certificate to Amazon, or, if I really like you, an invitation to dinner. You might want to take me up on that after I am done being gluten, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and animal free. A

How about your "guardian angel"??? That is what I call mine!

I like it. How long have you had yours?

RGValleyGal said...

I have a Medtronic (can't recall the name of it) but it is a combo of pacemaker and defibrillator. I have cardiomyopthy which has me in heart failure. I take Norpace 100CR for med and also take Lasix to control fluid retention.

I got mine on April 9, 2007 which was my 60th birthday! What a present, eh???

Hope you do well. Just make sure you keep your dr. followups and report any funny feelings, etc. to your doc. Eat well and sleep when you are tired. Exercise is good, but don't over do it.

Blessings,
Patricia

Nice. I now have almost forgiven you for beating me by 1 second in that Winery Crit. Almost....

Sarah said...

LOL! Well...once you get your pump thumping perfectly, we'll have a rematch! ;)

This is a repost because the "Dirt Diva" (now I know why she calls herself that) disqualified these gems as they were posted in the "wrong" section. Just try to tell me I am not going to win this thing!
How about Peppi the Pacer or Penelope the Pacer. how about Noblockicus (strong, Roman, Elite), How about a bumper sticker- "Honk if you are being Paced" or "MY AV NODE SUCKS, DOES YOURS?", "Being Paced- hoped they used Eveready" or "Even after your Licken, I will keep on Tickin"
or " I. M. Wenkinomore"- thats a good one or this one is the best "F.U. Perkinje" or a tribute to Mel Gibson- "Blockheart", I feel like I have no chance of losing. I want the amazon gift certificate-

Ah, but it is I that wants the Amazon gift certificate even more than you ... grin, smile, grin some more.
