Mt. Pleasant mayor recuperating from medical procedure
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant’s mayor thanked doctors on social media after returning home from surgery Monday.
Mayor Will Haynie posted a brief message on his Twitter account saying he was grateful to be home recuperating from a heart pacemaker implant.
“Suzette and I thank doctors Runquist and Rieder for their compassionate diagnosis and treatment,” he said in his post. “Don’t ignore heart health symptoms - get them checked.”
A pacemaker is a small device used to treat irregular heartbeats. They send electrical pulses to the heart to help it beat at a normal rate and rhythm.
Many people with pacemakers can return to their regular activities within a few days, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
