DBS And Other Fun ~ Part 1

by Joan Serratelli

Poem To make a long story short:
my pacemaker (in my brain)
needed a new battery no big deal
Out-patient surgery
a piece of cake

After Brain surgery
DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation)
it was like taking
a day trip to Philadelpia

Things went according to plan
I was in and out
in one day

That was May
about 2 months later,
my daughter looked at me
and told me that the wound was open.
She could actually see the pacemaker

Called the surgeon
He said it was rare,
but since I'm so thin....

Another surgery had to be done

It was the omen of things yet to be

Well, this is scary and suspenseful and I'm sure glad your daughter was there for you.
