Getting zapped is not a big deal. Why are you waiting until August? Do it on Tuesday.

Art, I'm almost out of sick leave at my regular job, so I have to wait until then. If I get it done on the 3rd, I'll have three days off after. Plus my cardiologist suggested we do it (I'm the one getting "done") in about two weeks. I'm also a licensed electrician, so I'm used to getting zapped.

I assume you're not taking three days off for recovery. The only "recovery" is waiting a few hours for the MJ juice to wear off.

Art, my cardiologist wants four weeks of INR readings in the 2.0-3.0 range before surgery. That now puts me in the middle of August. I'm okay with it. I started running again (with the Cardio's approval) and I'm starting to relax a little more. My 17 y.o. daughter is; A) going to FL. with some of her friends Sunday and B) going off to college in Aug.. She's the first one to leave the nest, so my wife's "sweat pumps" are working full bore.

Ah, the coumadin thing. Forgot about that, now it makes sense.

Tell him you want Pradaxa instead.

Well, going in this morning at 10. A little thirsty since I wasn't allowed to have anything to eat or drink from midnight on. I'll have a victory beer if all is successful, or a consolation beer if not... Pete

My first time in the hospital with a-fib was Nov 2009 then again Jan 2010. I self converted both times but the doc recommended ablation. Had ablation in April 2010. I still have Arrhythmia but keep it in check most of the time with drugs. I no longer drink caffine and *try* to limit my alcohol intake. Those times when I drink too much does cause me some fluttering. Otherwise it's business as usual and no restrictions. Hope you get this in check with few problems.
