Next I will have to do a pareto analysis to try to predict when it is going to shock me next. Up to 44 vials of blood so far this year and will probably break 50 next week.
Oh man that is a pretty tough regime. So far my regime, knock on wood, has worked for me. 7 pills aday and semi clean living. I don't even qualify for my implanted defibrillator any more. When I went in my ejection fraction was at 10% though and now it is in the 50% range

Oh yeah I don't lasik any more. But one time I got caught in the parking at the hospital when I was taking it.
