    Paula, We will be praying for both of you. It's a long wait when you're the one in the waiting room. Best wishes, and please keep us posted. Linda

              We are home!

              Hello All,
              Thanks to all of you for praying, we could feel your prayers. We are home and the surgery went well, it took a bit longer than expected because the dr. had to move the lead he had placed in Will's heart. Will said the device was tested two times while we was awake (groggy, but awake) and he said it WORKS. He is doing well. Thanks again to all of you for your support. Paula
