So, HalfshellHusband now has a pacemaker. When his cardio tests were run yesterday to see whether he needed one, the doctor decided it was inevitable and that he might as well do the surgery that day, since he had time.

It's in, and everything is looking good. Makes us feel slightly less bad about the hip replacement being postponed for a month due to wanting to run those tests. Having a pacemaker at HSH's age (60) is unnerving, but I guess we're lucky that treatment exists.

He's mostly feeling pretty good right now. I'm tired and stressed (I ate an entire bag of chocolate chips last night—augh). So, have some humor for all of us:

I hope he feels better soon-- I can't imagine waiting so long for relief from pain. And I hope you get to relax!

I wish it hadn't resulted in him having to postpone his surgery for a whole month, but if the pacemaker was necessary, I'm glad they did it.

He should be able to take the sling off his arm in about 10 days (something else we weren't planning on!), and overall I'm hoping that there's some slim chance the ortho surgeon might be able to move up the hip surgery. Probably not, but that would be such a blessing.
