Rural Hospital Electrification Program

Living in a rural community, our medical facilities aren't exactly state of the art but like the pioneers, sometimes we all have to make the best of it and chip in to make due. My wife Leslie snapped these photos of the medical procedure to restart my heart rhythm this morning. The operation was a success and seriously thanks to all for their good wishes! The nurses loved my electric chair t-shirt.

Anyway, all kidding aside, I was out for about 11 minutes on a strong hypnotic anaesthetic. The nurse said I lifted off the table pretty good with the shock. But the first one did the job and hopefully I can stay in sinus rhythm for a while. Excellent staff, no problems, menschy doctor.

(p.s. thank god we brought our own jumper cables. Now was it red to positive?)

Will that work on your Erectile dysfunction? It seemed to work for Peter Boyle in 'Young Frankenstein'. I am very happy that your heart is beating in time now. It is important that the pesky SA node do it's thing properly. Oh and for future reference it is red to +. Take care my friend and love to Leslie.
