Had a episode of Ventricular Tachycardia. Only way to restore normal heart beat was shock. Dang that hurt a LOT. Waiting on test results. Will try meds to prevent recurrence but may need fibrulator. More tomorrow.

Dang, Don:

That scares the living daylights out of me. Here's hoping and praying you get this under control soon. A pacemaker is not the end of the world... if it does the job properly. My brother, Roger... up at Caddo Lake had one for nearly twenty years.

Hopefully the worst part of this will be getting those damn EKG stickers off ... A person could make millions if they could develop a way to make those things easy (painless) to come off ...

Tony after that shock the EKG stickers are a piece of cake!
Everything looks good for now. Waiting on results didof Echo.
Dr said it was unbelievable that I walked in on my own.
He said that I easily could have died. They didn't even take the time to sedate me before the shock. Did I mention it was uncomfortable? smile

Don age brings warnings – please take good care of yourself.
It does sounds like you are coming through this one; thank God.

Don you are a winner – I know this by your manner; and by the many responses posted here. I believe no matter what your future holds; back to great health, walk with a limp, or a heavy cough, WHATEVER, you will raise to the top because you are a winner.

A speedy recovery, good health, and may you gain more of life’s wisdom as you come through, John C.

Don,

Amazing you walked into the hospital in your condition. This story is familiar a friend of mine was told the same thing by doctors at RI Hospital, they wondered how he ever drove himself to the ER and walked into the facility. He’s doing fine now. Hang in there.

Don
Thinking of you got me to setup a registration bank for country-ish stuff on my Tyros, stuff I used to do when I was younger. Got several registrations and songs setup I hadn't before. So know you are an inspiration from your hospital bed....be well..

Maybe we can all learn a country song we don't know this week, for Don. Call it the Don Mason challenge. Any takers?

I talked with Don about an hour ago. He dodged the big bullet, and the docs have him on meds to stabilize his heart rate. If he remains stable through the night, they will likely send him home tomorrow on the new regiment of medications. If not, then the only other option is a Pacemaker/Defibrillator implant, which is usually very, very effective.

Keeping my finger crossed,

Gary cool

I don't think those are the type of photos and videos Donny keeps requesting.

Hang in there and Godspeed Don--so thankful you got in to see the experts before anything worse transpired! Also thankfully, the technologies of pacemakers are well proven and have been around now for a long time. So YOU will be too! smile Just sayin'...

Keep us posted and hope you are back at the PA4X again 'post haste'!

Not good would be not having you here. Every procedure is daunting, but you'll be in better shape when you leave than when you walked in. And you'll be sticking around. That's good. Prayers will be coming from here.

Don, of course our prayers are with you, as well as with Susan and the family ... no doubt this is a most difficult time for all ...
A friend of our son had a pacemaker put in when he was about 40 years old ... he's about 51 now, and hasn't slowed down a bit ...
God Bless,

After talking with you last night, Don, I thought that would be the scenario. The good news is the pacemaker/defibrillators of today are extremely effective, the batteries usually last about 5 or more years, and they can be recharged externally, as I explained on the phone.

Good luck with the cardiac catheterization and don't mess with those young, cute, nurses for at least 24 hours after the procedure. wink After a day of recovery, go for it! smile

All the best,

Gary cool

Glad they figured things out quickly and you're on the mend. I had a business associate who damn near tanked. They put the stuff in you're getting and he is going strong (30 years ago!). Thinking of you and family. You'll be up and running soon!

The last ones I worked with were made by MedTronic, but that was a long time ago. At the time, they were in the process of miniaturizing them to something about the size of your little finger. The first ones were the size of a hockey puck.

Every morning this week I start my computer and check on two things. First and foremost is Don's condition and only after that I check on the news about the arrival of the PA1000. Don my friend I hope you are not doing too badly and that the pacemaker will have you up and running again behind the wheel, or rather the joy-stick , of your PA4X !!!

very best wishes,
John

John: Your sentiments regarding Mason and our daily routine are "spot on" as our British friends say. He is part of the mix of glue that holds the fabric of this Synth-Zone board together.

Even though the technology has improved on Pacemakers and the medical (operation) procedures are a "path well travelled"... there is always the chance that things might not go the way we desire. For that reason, I pray on Don's behalf.

Regarding his talent (as others have discussed)... Mason could make a Kazoo sound great... LOL! Thank you, John... for keeping him in your thoughts. ----Dave Rice

I had the heart cath this morning and the results were good. I will be in the hospital here until Monday morning, then be transferred to the Shreveport branch, which specializes in cardiac care for the implant procedure.
So far so good. Thanks for prayers and/or well wishes.

Just walked in from trip to Orlando, Don, so glad things are looking up. A good friend experienced the same thing, and, with a little lifestyle change, he's been fine for several years.

Take care of yourself! You're an important 1/2 of the "Mutt and Jeff" duo...not the most important part...that's the little guy...He..He!

I talked with Don about an hour ago. His spirits are high, he has a lot of pretty nurses looking after him, and he's looking forward to getting the pacemaker implanted Monday so he can finally go home and enjoy some Cajun cooking.

Best wishes Don! My brother recently had a heart related operation that was successful. He had an irregular heart beat that made him almost lose consciousness when he stood up. A healthful diet and exercise are always beneficial if your doctor recommends it but "slow and easy" is par for the course after recovering from any surgery especially heart surgery.

PS: You don't look too happy in that photo but that new pacemaker should really make a difference and so hopefully you'll be back to your old self very soon.

All the best,

Mike

Don- you have to feel good that you've inspired a 10 page thread on Synthzone, where nobody is saying who or what is better than the other, changing the subject, arguing, or telling bad jokes!

The only typical question to be asked is "When will you be posting the (surgical) video? rolleyes

I just talked with Susan, Don's implant went well this afternoon, he is on his way back to his room and will likely go home tomorrow. The docs tested the pacemaker/defibrillator and said the voltage was right where it should be, which is a good sign.

I'll probably talk with Don tomorrow and post his thoughts, or maybe he will do it himself, which would be even better.

All the best,

Gary

Don, that is a compression bandage. Be careful with this, and if you feel any numbness or tingling sensation below the bandage, call the nurse immediately and have it loosened a bit until those feelings go away. This is very, very important!

Just got off the phone with Don, he's fine, but probably not going home till tomorrow. Nothing to do with his condition, though. The roads in Shreveport, LA are ice and snow covered today, the temperature is well below freezing, and the cardiologist has not been there to see him yet, and it is 1 p.m.. Don said Shreveport has essentially come to a standstill due to the weather. Hopefully, the roads will be defrosted by tomorrow and he can go home to some of Susan's Cajun cooking.

I haven't been on the forum much, but I saw this a few days ago. Wishing you a quick recovery!

I know what it's like. I stepped on a roll of toilet paper, and they found soft tissue injuries.

Damnit, Mason. I go to the trouble to get sick on a trip, and you JUST HAD to do me one better!

You win, and I'm really hoping you get better, fast. My associate, George, had a pacemaker/defibrillator installed, and it worked GREAT.

Just wish I were healthier and closer.

Thanks everyone. Had a rather rough night, mainly because one of the new medicines made me ITCH LIKE CRAZY!
I think I know which one and will get a different one.
Mostly napping and resting today. Want to avoid the pain pills if possible.
It's so cold I wouldn't be going out anyway. 11 degrees this morning! New record for this area this time of year. Hot water pipe frozen.
I'm starting to think that if I make it through all this, my wife will kill me anyway. What an angel I have there!

You sure it was the medicine? We warned you to stay away from those young nurses; Blue Ointment should help smile.

Glad you're on the mend.

Glad you're home and on the mend. I had heart surgery a few years back and I never could have made it without my wife's help so they are indeed angels. smile

Wow Don, I am impressed. I have read through these posts twice and I can only repeat what I felt before you got sick --- you are special country boy deserving all the caring and love that you are here on S.Z.

Be well and come back stronger than before. I know that you will come back with a new understanding of life’s priorities; an understanding that will make your life better than before.

Good Morning, Don:

Be prepared for a "long siege!" The good news is "Mason is above ground"... and all of us who admire him so much are comforted by knowing that. Take baby-steps, exercise patience, enjoy every moment you possibly can. Eventually, full speed ahead... and there won't be any torpedoes!

All the best, ---Dave
