Bob Crocker says he has never felt better.
He is the the first to receive an implanted heart device that helps pump blood throughout his body from UMass Medical Memorial Center in Worcester, allowing him to return to activities like gardening and taking his dog, Dexter, out for a walk.
"In the last month, I've got this burst of energy and I don't know where it came from," Crocker said. "I feel too good to be cooped up in a room."
