Barb, just wanted to add my good luck wishes to you!
I have a story:
My sister-in-in law has epilepsy. She was having really bad seizures and she went to the mayo clinic and they did a major surgery on her and put in something called a vegas nerve stimulator.
It is supposed to help control the seizures, and whenever she felt a seizure coming on she was supposed to hold a little magnet up to her chest, and it would control it.
Well anyway, she works at walmart, so she went back to work after a period of recovery....(they had to cut into her brain to do this....so she was off work quite sometime.)
Anyway, she went back to work, and then after a month she reported back to the mayo clinic so they could see how it was going.
There is some way that they could tell how many times the Vegas nerve stimulator had gone off in that one month period, and were astonished to find it had been 1,000's of times!!!
But my sister-in-law said she had no way triggered it that often, so they couldn't figure it out.
guess what...they finally figured it out...she was running the cash register at walmart, and everytime she rang something up, it was magnetically triggering the stimulator!!!
needless to say, she has to stay far away from the cash registers now!!! they put her back stocking shelves!
