The telephone message was wrong; the patient registration office doesn't open till 7:00. The procedure is a T.E.E.

The defib also has a pacemaker. It was slowed down to save th battery so that there will be enough juice for a full zap if needed. The doctor doesn't think it should affect me, but the tech who does the readings and resettings has assured me that every lowering of speed in the unit will lower my energy level. But somwhow, it has to be brought back up to some higher level; I'm barely functional as it is.

Thanks for the continuing good thoughts = Tom
