Ughhhh (I could scream!)

Just when you think things are calming down for you even in the storm..

Even more thunder rocks your world.

My internal battery is dying. Which means another surgery. It might sound like I'm whining...

And you're right. I am.

It's only been 5 months since my revision and the second lead added. Now I'll have to have my back and butt cut open again.

The 2 month healing time is just something I don't want to do again. I really am tired of it. Yet I have no choice in the matter. Well I suppose there is one choice... but I wouldn't survive 3 months of it.

Will call my Medtronic Specialist to test my robo ass for sure. They have to plug me in and check me with their own equipment. I'm sure though I need a new one. it's just not holding a charge without being strapped up to run off the base unit. Our SMUD bill is going to be so high. Cuz now I'm running off the wall, the homes power. Not even sure how long that will last. Cuz once the internal is drained, nothing but a replacement will bring it back on.

Can I say.. fuck! now?

Until next time..

I hope that sucker came with a warranty. Surely, it's supposed to last for years. Otherwise, you would spend half your life just recovering from surgery.

I think it's suppose to be a 5 year battery, Snow. When I had my revision in March, they said another year to replace it. That would leave 7 months or about. It may be because the only time I turn it off is to give it a half hour break here and there or it goes off when it loses it's charge. I'm having to charge it more often.

And you are so right about always recovering from surgery.

Hopefully once it's replaced I can just coast for another 5 years and not have to keep doing this.

Warm wishes to you
