Yesterday's heart ablation went well! I'm recuperating at my sister Alice's (and Keith's) house while Mary Beth waits on me, since I'm not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds. I didn't sleep very well last night (despite being sent home to a quiet house) as I still have a lot of chest tightness and premature atrial contractions (PACs) that kind of smack me awake out of my sleep. The PACs are supposed to go away over the next couple of weeks.
Ablation technology is just amazing nowadays. That one can run a catheter up my leg vein into my heart and find aberrant pathways and zap 'em is incredible.
Travel technology is amazing. I can be in Cuzco Friday afternoon and be in Chicago Saturday morning with Sarah and Zach. 150 years ago that would have been a 6-month trip, if you could have pulled it off at all.
Communication technology is amazing. I could make all of the arrangements for the surgery and travel and housing easily from Peru.
Praise God for all of these great inventions!
Our plan is to hang out in Nebraska for a couple of days while I recover and then head up to Canada for a week before we fly back to Peru on July 11th.
A big thank you to everyone that has been praying for my surgery to go well and please keep praying that I get through this recuperation time without complications. I have to be on blood thinners for 3 months.
