Just got a message from Helen: She went with Dad to the cardiologist (Dr. Musselman) today. He wants another TEE, so Dad's scheduled for Monday. They don't mess around when it comes to prompt scheduling.
I talked to Dad this morning: He said Musselman was pleased that Dad has evidently improved since they put the second lead in his Pacemaker; perhaps that has relieved the burden on the iffy valve.
Dad always went to his regular doctor, Dave Wiggins, who said Dad was in amazing health for his age. So Dad was feeling pretty pumped. (No heart pun intended.) As well he should.
