a good report

I went to the heart Dr. for a pace-maker check today.
Over the last six months, my pacer has only had to work 9% of the time.
Which means 91% of the time, my heart rate stayed where it should be - above 60.
9% is a really good number.
At this rate, my battery should last a long time.

The technician said, "There's only one episode I see, where your heart rate was abnormal. On April 26th at 10:57 am, your heart rate got up to 180 beats per minute and stayed there for 7 minutes." (Just so you know, it's normally around 70-80.)

I thought and thought and then I laughed and said...
"That was my birthday! It was the first day I rode my new bike! I guess that first bike ride was what did it!" ha-ha!!!!

Just wanted to share my good report.
I've been praising God for it.
