    Once again I am here to update on EZ's situation. He went into the hospital Thrusday morning to have a pacemaker/defib installed into the ol' ticker. Procedure took about three hours and he came out of it with flying colors. The doctor was happy with how well the procedure went. We spent the night in the hospital and should be coming home sometime this morning. At any rate, he'll be taking it easy (EZ) for a while and told me to tell you all he may be scarce for a week or so until he came move around better. All in all, he's doing great and commented how well he was feeling already.

    Coulda just had a DCC unit installed while he was there. Control the trains with mere thought patterns.

    Good to hear everything went well!

    Will this interfere with the radio-controlled throttle installation?

    Don, After a couple bypasses and a mitral vale, they had a recall for me to return tothe shop for a 3,000 mile checkup. I had to have a pacemaker/defibrilator put in. Now they will give you a recall and hook you up to a diagnostic machine to see if your carb is perking alright.

    Make sure you take it slow and easy. Having that thing put in is no fun. After several years, it has never been used, but it sure is nice knowing it is there. I hope yours is the same.

    ezdays Out AZ way

    Just a short update. My son Pat (Hobbes) sat with his mother for the 3 1/2 hours I was in the OR. I was happy he could do this, she's been though enough of my battles and sat in too many waiting rooms by herself these past few weeks. When I got out of OR, I told them I felt great. Little did I know they had me pretty well shot up with novocaine. Well, it's worn off now and I'm a bit sore. No, I'm a lot sore. I can't sit in one place for long periods, but other than that I'm doing just fine.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Thank you all for your warm and kind wishes and your prayers. They did a world of good. :wave: :wave:Thanks also to those that have been wearing a pacemaker for your inputs. It's helped put my mind at ease.:)

    I should be back in full swing by the end of this week. I'd better be, I'm looking forward to going to that train swap meet in Phoenix this coming Saturday.:thumb: :thumb:

    Great to have you back EZ! Glad to hear you're on the mend.

    So are you DC (Direct Control) or converted to DCC (Digital Cardiac Control)?

    (An attempt at humor.) :D
