Stan didn't tell me until night that he had been pretty worried about the procedure because it was his heart. He is much more relaxed now, but pretty sore. He has been sitting outside most of the day just enjoying life. The doctor said the procedure went really well and the monitor tech said it is working properly. He showed us how to set up the monitor that sends data to his doctor. (Basically, you just plug it in.) He will have his arm in a sling for a week. He can take the bandage off and shower on Tuesday. I'm going to try to keep his arm in the sling until he sees the doctor on the 24th.
I have my annual appointment with my Oncologist today, so Walter is coming over to try to keep Stan out of trouble. I made them chicken and dumplings with an extra serving for Walter to take home. I also made sweet potato casserole - one for today and two for Walter to take home. Stan won't eat sweet potato anything and I used real brown sugar, so I can't have any.Everyone says he will have more energy and feel better because of the pacemaker aspect. It will stimulate the lower chambers to pump at the same time.
