Well I'm in sicu still hooked up to a million lines chest tube and a pacemaker. I should get the chest tube out tonight or tomorrw. I can't move to the stepdown till my heart paces itself and they think it can run on its own. But they won't know for a couple days. But there's a chance I might need a pacemaker. Evidently some of the calcification from the valve is on the node. I just got this pacemaker bomb dropped on me as I was posting this.....I guess I could use some more prayers gang.

So here's a pic.

Pics or it didn't happen. Taken in my goth neice who's away at college room that I'm recoverying in's room at my sister's house. Not a great pic but you should be able to see the incission, the bump where the pacemaker is at, the bandaids covering where the chest tubes went in, various other holes where things were jammed in, tape goop from the ekg leads and maybe even the bruises from the countless ivs and needle pokes. Handsome ain't I?

Just a quick shot of Revvy outside his house sporting his new pacemaker:
