If they find blood clots we'll have to work on dissolving them before proceeding; they don't want to shock any clots into my bloodstream where they could cause a stroke.

    Anyway, this is planned as an outpatient procedure with light sedation. My good friend Dr. Ron will be my anesthesiologist; I'm happy about that.

    Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers at 130 pm this week Tuesday, Mar 12.
    will do Dread.

    Best wishes to you! My dad for instance got a pacemaker just recently. It was an easy little surgery and he has no problems at all now.

    Dread, amigo, my sister in law had a real problem. They converted her and she wouldn't stay in NSR. So they did the nerve ablation (which if I have more trouble they'll do on me) which is like a cardiac catheterization through the femoral artery and they go in and fry the nerves that are acting up and making your heart beat out of sync. That should work but with her, it still wasn't enough. So they did a pacemaker and now her rhythm is controlled and all is well. They can fix this...... stay calm. We're here if you need us, okay??

    Several coming your way Dred.
    Try and keep more positive thoughts than negative--not easy but when you get through that old "kicked in the stomsch" feeling, you got a lot of music left.
