Following on from last night's information, the Doctor has just been in to confirm (KEMH willing) that they are going to be fitting an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator this evening. Basically it is a device a bit like a pacemaker which monitors the heart and zaps it if it starts misbehaving. When they put it in they are going to test that it works by doing what they did yesterday again and seeing if it stops the problem. This is all going to be done under General Aneathestic (thank God!!)
This is what one of the doofers looks like:
The op isn't until this evening so managed to get a breakfast in this morning, just as well as I was bloody starving again! In the end I went 22 hours without food yesterday and was not looking forward to doing it again today...
Feel a bit violated following a bed bath by the scariest nurse I have ever met... My boundaries of decency have been stretched to the limits after she decided to carry out the whole procedure with the door wide open, to cap it all the mad old bird muttered to herself the whole time as well!
