Of course I woke up very early as I wanted to be ready to leave the house by 7. Changed the sheets, fed the dog and cats, took a shower and was ready to go. It was raining and stayed in the high 60s. Jenny was on farm duty and took care of morning chores.

The Pacemaker is Working
Even tho I had to be there by 7:45, they did not take me in to prepare for the procedure until almost 9:30.
I was given a great deal of attention by nurses, a PA, anesthesiologist, Doctor and the Pace Maker dude. So many wires were put on me. They answered every question I could think of. I was back in recovery around 11:30, had an X-ray at 1:30, made sure the pacemaker was working right and released at 2:20. Got back to the farm around 3 and Jenny was busy in the kitchen. Aside from a dull ache, felt very alert and called many of my friends who had been communicating with Jenny. Scott stopped up and before leaving they went out and brushed the ponies. I am so grateful to be through with this.
Little Wonder was pouting because I didn't let him get up on my lap.
They sent me home with a sling that I need to wear when I sleep so I don't accidentally put my left hand above my shoulder. Will be wearing it to the barn too....for 6 weeks. I can drive in 3 days.
Gary and I went out to the barn and fed the horses. No lifting for me.
Jenny picked some tulips for our kitchen table. Such a thoughtful kid!
She also made us corn chowder for dinner.
