A brief update on E

The meds are not working the way they should. The dr. is going to try a different dosage but told E today, he'll probably be getting a pace maker tomorrow. Naturally, we are a bit nervous about this even though it is a pretty standard procedure these days. I told E he could be like my dad if he gets one and ask all the pretty young gals if they would like to feel his pace maker (and yes, my dad does this...it seems to be a conversation starter for him...or something!).

Rob is up visiting now and then he and I will get something to eat. He says to leave the drowned cell phone and camera in the baggies for at least another day and hope the water (where ever it came from) did not short anything out.

As Roseanne Rosannadanna use to say, "If it's not one thing, it is something else".

Getting a pacemaker is only a small deal when it is happening to someone else! Prayers for E and hugs for Jules.

I work with cardiac patients. At my hospital pacemakers are done in the heart cath lab and are considered a "proceedure" not a surgery.I will continue to pray for both of you to have a peace about this and for everything to proceed smoothly.love ,ms.cheryl

Best wishes for you both. My dad is 81 and had a pacemaker put in last August. The procedure was done late in the afternoon and we took him home at 8:30 that evening. He has done very well with it since.
