Captain has been scheduled for his procedure:
Friday morning, March 7
at KU Med Center (Rainbow Blvd).
Captain will receive a pacemaker/defibrillator combination (called AED). The pacemaker will help with his mitral valve alignment, and the defibrillator will possibly save his life. This surgeon implanted the first defibrillator in Kansas City around 30 years ago and has had 100% success. Captain also was able to start the genetic blood testing to see which direction we go for testing our own children.
We also stopped at the other hospital on the way home to visit Gr. Don, who is still battling pneumonia.
