Coming up this week
November 27, 2011
-ICD check up with Dr. Ovadia
-scheduling filming for the rest of December
The schedule will be dependent upon what happens at the checkup. My sister, Allison, is due for a new ICD. At the last appointment her device was slowly approaching ERI (elective replacement indicator) and we’ll find out if it’s there or not.
The uncertainty’s mildly annoying but at least it falls when she’s off work (even if it will be during the holiday).
for more info on the nuances and functions of an ICD, check out THIS ARTICLE. Little intense on the details, and yes, focuses on the fact that its still the misconception that only elderly patients have them, but it’s very informative on the device’s functions and makeup.
