CARLA’S SHOCKING NIGHT WITH HER PACEMAKER I had just been home a week after having a pace- maker/defibrillator implanted. I was sitting watching TV. All of a sudden, I received a jolt and shock that left me wondering; how I could have possibly been hit by lightning inside our house? I finally came to my senses (such as they are) and realized that the defibrillator had shocked me. Within half an hour, I received another shock while I was talking to my doctor. I was told to go to the ER, so 911 was called. Within minutes, the first responder, Officer Down— ing was there. Shortly after that came Chief Huston, fol- lowed by the rescue unit. At that point, I was far from calm in fear of another shock at any time. Paramedic Ioe Patava, Austin Lancaster and Mark Muener were very professional, competent and under- standing. They got me situated in the ambulance and explained exactly what was happening, all the while reassuring me. Everyone was very efficient. Ijust wanted to let everyone know exactly how for- tunate we are to have such quality people in our town. Thank all of you for coming to my aid. I appreciate ev- erything you did to help me. I am truly grateful! And, by the way, I was rewired and I am doing well! /s/Carla Becker Norwalk 4-H All-Stars The regular meeting of the Norwalk 4-H All Stars was held Sunday, Sept. 13, at the NorWalk Easter Public library.
