Well, I was supposed to get my Holter monitor today (records cardiac activity)--and wear it for a week. But ... Robert Burns ... "To a Mouse":
The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley,
So ... we drove to Twinsburg for the 10:30 appointment and hook-up (don't think unclean thoughts!), and they hooked me up (ditto), explained how the thing worked, gave me a demonstration of how to send "episode" information ...
Didn't work. Several attempts to reboot, switch batteries, etc. Then ... a call to the company. No help.
And then I learned they had only one unit available in the Twinsburg office.
So ... the company will send me another one via some sort of hurry-up delivery service, at which time I will, I guess, hook it up myself. (They showed me how ... to hook up.)
Only a tiny sliver of good news--well, two tiny slivers.
1. I don't have to wear it today. Or tomorrow, probably.
2. I can shower/bathe: I just have to remove the device + the sticky patches, then attach new stickers after the shower/bath. Etc.
So my family, my associates--the entire customer base at the Open Door Coffee Co.--all are grateful that they will not have to pretend I don't reek, at least in an olfactory sense, because I haven't bathed for a week--the term I'll be hooked-up (again: Be Clean in Your Thoughts).
More news awaits you after the ... hook-up ...
Be patient ...
