Technology amazes me

Awhile ago, I wrote about the results of Zachy's carelink.
It is absolutely amazing to me the things we are able to do in this day and age.
First, it is crazy to think that there is a gadget, embedded in his chest that is making his heart beat correctly.
And then, to be able to do these carelinks. We hook this machine up to the phone line, he puts a disc over the pacemaker, and all the information is drawn out and sent to the dr.
CRAZY!
The dr was talking about how they are working on biological pacemakers right now. He said in Zachy's lifetime, he thinks they will be able to implant a microchip into his heart, and it will work as the pacemaker. AND..it wouldn't have a battery to wear out, or lead wires to break. How cool that would be!
Yes, technology is definitely amazing!

Technology is amazing! What a blessing for Zach (and you!) that it can help him in such wonderful ways!

Thanks for your comment on my lipstick challenge post. Here is the link to see the colors: http://www.marykay.com/hhoffman2/color/lips/viewall/default.aspx

You can either leave another comment or e-mail me with your choices and your snail mail address. (I'll still count it in the drawing for the free lipstick.) If you have questions about color choices, just let me know!
