Living with CHF: The First Data Download

Yesterday, was my first “official” full ICD┬áscan and data download. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I know that there’s a magic wand that they use to wave over the device, but beyond that, I wasn’t quite sure what data it would reveal. Since I work for a software company, and generally like cool technology and gadgets in general, I wanted to know as much as possible.

Parking is always a pain at the hospital where my cardiologist has an office, so I went straight for the parking deck. I have some inside information about the deck, apparently there’s been a few issues lately with “a few break-ins”, and by “a few” apparently that really means 55+ in the past few months. When I pulled into the parking deck, there was a police car ahead of me, slowly making his rounds through the deck, I’m assuming trying to put a dent in the criminal activity . With an inability to pass, I kept my distance and waited. He pulled into a slot and I continued practicing lefthand turns until I reached the top and sunlit level of the deck. I thought that someone would have to be pretty ballsy to break into my car on the open level of the deck in the daylight – that’s just stress than I don’t want to deal with right know. Spoiler alert, the car ended up being fine.
