      Hi Cappy. I understand your anxiety. I pray you'll have peace as you wait. I have full confidence you will be wondering on Wednesday afternoon what you were so worried about. Take care.

          Cappy.

          It's human to be nervous. I was also extreemly nervous. Problem is that you keep thinking about it over and over and over again. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
          When I had my implant and was wheeled into recovery, my wife asked me how it went. I replied " piece of cake".

          I'll be thinking of you in my prayers. Keep us updated.

          Stay well and God Bless

            Re: ICD Implant Scheduled

            Part of my anxiety is that I never ever have had surgery before. The only thing remotely close was the Cath I had done back in March.

            One good thing is that it will be done at the hospital that my wife works as a nurse, so I get a little bit of VIP TLC from the staff.
