So we are all set for Surgery this Friday at 3:00p.m.. The last few days have been hard as the anticipation of this surgery is heavy on our minds. My surgeon told me that they will have to test the defibrillator once it is implanted. He also mentioned that there is a chance that it wont work because of interference with my current pacemaker. They believe this was the issue with the last surgery. If this were to be the case they will need to surgically remove my current pacemaker and set the pacer/defibrillator combo. Its hard, tricky, and causes fear for a lot of complicated reasons that are hard to explain.
Our biggest prayer is that the defibrillator would work, the lead will connect to my heart with no issues and all will go better than we could have asked. We are also hoping this recovery will go smoother than the last. It’s been a long 8 weeks and I’m just very ready to be on the other side of things. Grateful for the last few days to feel somewhat back to my old self. Below is a song that I have been listening to this week. Hope it blesses one of you.
