    Ever seen the video of Anthony Van Loo go down on the field (pitch) and get shocked back by his cardiac ICD?




    Well, I had one of these implanted a couple years ago. Received my first "shock" the other morning. Around 6am I was sound asleep one second, then wide WIDE awake the next second. I sat right up.... thinking WTF!!!!... took me a second to realize what had happened.  Weird thing is I felt better than normal. haha,,, Except a sore feeling around the implant area. I scanned my implant, uploaded the data via wifi and doctor told me exactly what happened and how things looked now... crazy tech.


    Bottom line...It may have saved my life..... I'M ALIVE!  Feeling great today... 





     

    wow...good for you!

    I was finally able to spew some words about my "Shocking" experience - 

    -------
    Graveyard Hill Can Wait – Near Death at the Pixies
    How a Device and The Pixies saved my Life
    I know, I know…dark title. It’s, of course, a play on the Pixies first best-of compilation album, Death To The Pixies and the song “On Graveyard Hill” from the bands newly released ”Beneath the Eyrie” LP. The titles sort of engrained themselves on me after seeing, photographing, enjoying, and eventually surviving a recent Pixies show.
    Surviving? Yup, that’s what I said, surviving. Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with a lot medical jargon or sad stories....   
    .........from article.........
    The band had just finished playing fan favorite “Where’s Is My Mind?” and are now in the middle of song 21 of the night, “Gigantic”. That’s when I felt what can only be describe as a weird flutter feeling on the left side of my chest.......

    I IG'd this -  https://www.instagram.com/p/B94eWgNJm-A/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

     Thank you @pearljam for being ahead of the curve! From venue safety, to ticket prices, to our current Covid19 social distancing needs. This band has always put their fans well being at the forefront. 
    Today, March 18th, was set be the opening show kicking off their world tour for their new album, Gigaton. 
    Back on March 9th (seems like forever ago) the band released a letter penned by frontman Eddie Vedder explaining the difficult choice to postpone the tour. The next two days, I read numerous comments about “Over Reaction!” and “Eddie Vedder’s politics” - Then in OKC on March 11 the dominoes began to fall, as the NBA closed down. The online PJ hate rants disappeared as the rest of the country shutdown in hopes of diminishing the affects of this deadly virus. 
    As both photographer and fan. I was looking forward to this tour. At the same time, having a pre-existing condition that puts me in a higher risk category I appreciated the bands bold EARLY move, staying ahead of the curve to help flatten the Covid19 curve.
    Now we need our leaders to be ahead of the curve! Thank you Pearl Jam!! When we get through this we can all get together and “Sing in the Choir”, See you then!! 🎸
    📷 Image was taken on the bands 2013/14 Tour in Tulsa, OK 📷🎸
