Dad update

So they’re doing a cardiac conversion, basically shocking his heart back into normal rhythm, to try to get him out of afib.

If it works they’ll send him home. If it doesn’t then they’ll keep him overnight. My dad basically has one foot out the door.

I think that procedure usually works well. I hope it does what's needed for your dad. What did he have done last week?

That is good that they figured out something to do! How is your mom?

Fingers crossed that works. And that it shocks him into being a big more transparent with his symptoms. Love you.

Thinking of you all! Praying the treatment works and that foot comes right back in and stays kicks that door shut.

I have a family member who had that procedure and it went well—all my good thoughts for your dad.

We dealt with my FIL having afib on several occasions, and the conversion typically worked well. Prayers it does for your dad also.

Hope it works well. One of my former colleagues went through this last year and came out of it fine.

My husband had this done 2 weeks ago and it went well. Thinking positive thoughts for your father's health.

DH has had this procedure done twice, both times AFTER I suggested we get to the ER, but was dismissed by DH for being irrational so I totally understand your mothers frustrations. When I read your initial post, it was as though I was reading what went on here the first time he needed the procedure. The light bulb moment for DH was when the doctor told him he was thisclose to having a stroke. The cardiac medications list is long (on top of the diabetic meds) and the insurance to cover them is why I keep working.

Cardiac conversion is fascinating and gets the job done. Wishing your dad a quick recovery.
