We checked into the Walnut Hill Medical Center right at 6am and at 7:35 they wheeled Dad off to the OR. Dr D expects it will take two to three hours to install the new pacemaker/defibrillator.
I'm not sure that another cup of coffee is what I need right now, but...
Now it's 11:44. Helen and I have met with Dr. D and Dad's in recovery. The surgery went well. Evidently it was a little tricky threading the wiring through the blood vessels, but it's securely in place. He now has a defibrillator so if the heart slows down it will zap it back. He x should be discharged Friday morning.
Then we'll see what happens next.
