Hi, when i re-read my last e-mail, I think I mis-spoke my position on my feeling on how to handle dad's latest medical news. 

Originally, I was 100% against the 5 year pacemaker plan and i was leaning on the side of doing nothing as opposed to going in and doing a "battery change". I was about 80% in favor of doing nothing.

Then after the e-mails, and seeing that dad is again in the hospital for a possible heart attack (as opposed to just pneumonia (still to come?)) and developing bed sores, i am now completely convinced that doing nothing is the proper thing to do. 

When i re-read my last e-mail it sounded to me that my last e-mail made it sound like i might have been in favor of doing the battery change and you all talked me out of it. That is not the case, so no need to worry that you  guys are forcing me to agree to a course of action against my will.

It sounds to me that, once again, we are all on the same page.

Late yesterday afternoon I was talking to my boss about this and he told me about his late-90 year old uncle.  His uncle was a member of the "breakfast club" at the Y that i went to for 6 years when i worked in Easton. He was there when they opened up at 5:30 and hung around until mid-morning working out, having coffee, and telling any and all who would listen how to fix the world.

Well he went in for a pacemaker "battery change" and got an infection and was dead within a month.  This man was in great shape for a 90 year old and is now passed on.  If that can happen to him, i can't imagine a good outcome for dad.

Anyway, just wanted to make sure that you all knew that you are not forcing me into an action.

Love to all,  tom
