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:

Playing dress-up with the Queen of England. Bat-queen to the rescue!

I'm glad that the surgery went well and that the hip operation is soon.

Now relax.

Thank you!

The relaxing is hard-- there is suddenly more to do around the house, and this is giving us a "preview" of how that will be after the hip surgery. Thank goodness the sling is on his left hand this time-- he had his right arm in a cast after he broke his wrist in October, and he's really right-handed. That nearly drove him nuts.

Ar least both kids are at home. A preview helps you work out ways to make life easier after the hip surgery,
