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!

he may be young for these things, but he's (and you because of it) had so much bother these last years, at least it's on the way to healing and being done

I sure hope so. The congestive heart failure issue is the scariest part of all of this, as it isn't something that ever gets better and has serious consequences. But this can't hurt it. And oh, do we want the hip to be replaced so it will stop inundating him with pain.
