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:

The real problem with delaying the hip surgery is the pain issue. Also that if you drop your "spot," it can be awhile before the doctor has an opening again. So, the surgery should have been last Friday but for this heart appt. yesterday. Now it'll be almost exactly a month later.

In pain hours, that seems like forever.

I did like the weather-queen version, with the guy in the background doing his schtick. :D
