on the mend

Bing got an implantable cardiac defibrillator yesterday evening. He's one step closer to being a bionic man. My vote for the next step: electronic hand, a la Luke Skywalker.

Rob is rubbing off on me.

There was no valve replacement at this time, which means Bing still has a slightly faulty original, but also hasn't had open heart surgery, which is automatically a faster recovery. The ICB will be able to help moderate his heart rate if it gets fluttery and erratic, or it can provide a shock/jump start if his heart should stop unexpectedly. Mom and Dad are driving home today and grabbed Blake on their way through Spokane. Bing, Lane, and Maddox should be getting home on Saturday. Hurray and praise God!
