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!

Wow, that was a fast surgery booking! Glad it's dealt with.

That's true-- you usually don't get that kind of turnaround! But that way, it'll be free and clear when the hip surgery shows up in a month.

I know there were concerns about the combination of the heart issue and general anaesthetic, so the hip surgeon will be happier about this all the way around.
