Seems like it's just one thing after another...

So...Tom is having a procedure at Wentworth-Douglass on Monday. He was told by his doctor 8:30 -- be there by 8:15.

Yesterday (Saturday) we got an automated reminder call from Scheduling that said he had to be there at 7 AM. I can tell you THAT'S not going to happen!

So he has to call Scheduling TODAY (Sunday) and hope there's someone there who has a clue.

Tomorrow, too, he has to talk to his cardiologist about the defibrillator situation. It's not just having an energy level slightly higher than a rock, but he has to stop and catch his breath after every short walk (like to the bathroom). The anesthesiologist at Mass General ain't gonna like THAT one bit!
