Buddy is five today! Five years ago, buddy entered my world and changed it forever. Of course buddy was never planned for. How do you plan for someone like Buddy?

I still remember the emotions I felt the day before I got buddy. I knew that the next day nothing I did would ever be the same. So much that I used to do would be a thing of the past. Like sledding. I love sledding. Nope, buddy does not like sledding at all. He could get all worked up with that one.

Still, as much as he can be a pain in my side, he’s there for me. Day in and day out. Just sitting there, waiting. Waiting for that day we all hope never ever has to come. And I hope it never does come.

Happy birthday Buddy. Here’s looking forward to another five years.

The average lifespan of Buddy is ten years. Buddy is my implanted defibrillator
