I’m happy to report that my father is doing well today. Though they’re still not certain what actually caused his “cardiac incidents” they have inserted a permanent pacemaker / defribulator to address the symptom – his heart stopping. Thank you all for the kind words through this. I was really taken aback from all of the comments my last post received – it’s been my most popuplar post yet! I’ll likely be bringing my parents home today or tomorrow.

  13. Hi there… was out looking for other middle-America blog sites and came across yours. Just wanted to say Hi, and that my Mom also has an implanted difibrilator. She’s been doing great with it for years. In fact, she just recently went in to have her batteries replaced (I think that’s a hoot).

    Wishing godspeed to his recovery…
