that we have to make a few changes.
She (and I) spend a lot of time on our computers. She told me that she felt
dizzy after sitting in front of her computer for several minutes, and I figured
out that it was her wireless Microsoft mouse that was at fault, probably
because she has her hand right on a radio transmitter when using the mouse. I
removed that and replaced it with a wired mouse. She felt much better
immediately after I removed the wireless mouse, so that was obviously at least
part of the problem.
I am also thinking that I could move her computer far away from her if I
have to, using USB extension cables and a monitor extension cable. I haven't
done that yet, though — I'm not sure if it will be necessary or not.
I did get her a wired phone for her today to put on computer desk to replace the
wireless phone that she has been using up to now.
This all amounts to ongoing experimentation to find out what's going to work
and be beneficial, and what won't.
Do any of you folks have any experience with this pacemaker stuff? Any
suggestions for what I can do to minimize or eliminate anything that might
affect her pacemaker?
It's a whole new world of learning for both of us."
