    Hey gang,

    I'm going in for surgery this morning, to replace my pacemaker. I got this existing pacemaker in December of 1997 when I had my heart transplant, and now it's time to replace it. It's old, and the battery has only a month or so left on it.

    It should be a routine surgery. They just take the old one out, and (assuming the leads are good) pop the new one in.

    You might not see me for a few days, not that I'm super super active, but I will be resting up. We'll see. If I feel good enough, I may spend my time at the computer, in which case you'll get sick of me by Sunday :p

    Take care bro and rest up. Remember plenty of fluids and the remote should be close. We'll see you when you're feeling better. I'll be keeping you in thought and prayer.

    You don't sound too worried about it. Seems like you feel pretty comfortable with the procedure, so we'll be waiting to hear from you or Marge ;)
