Making the development even more surprising is the fact that Meyer is only 45, and by all appearances he is in good health.

    That’s what I said when the doc said I needed to have a defibrillator implanted in my chest, except I’m not that old.
    I will be curious to see if he has HCM. It has a way of sneaking up on you. Usually the first symptom is dying young.

    I was 42 when my Gem III, Internal Cardio Defibrillator, was “installed”. Lasted 7 years, never kicked me. Got a new one a year ago August, the Virtuoso from Medtronic. It kicked me in the first month. Glad I had it. Saved my life. Pissed me off cuz it hurt, but I got over it in like three seconds.
    My heart (no pun) goes out to Urban Meyer and his family. Living with a heart problem is not pleasant but it can be done.
