Cardioversion Success

Chris was cardioverted yesterday morning. I wasn't in the room, so I don't know if they really yell "CLEAR!" like they do on TV Medical Dramas. The good news is that it only took one shock and he went right into a normal rhythm after four weeks of atrial flutter. We hope that it will hold. If not, Chris will have to have another procedure to cauterize the pesky parts of the heart that are causing the problem. We might try to find a more modern surgery suite if he has to have that done. I mean, look at the photo of the doctors here prepping Chris for the procedure on Monday... .
