Shake That Jello!!

Just a quick note to let folks following us that we did not get to depart for Indiana this morning as planned. Instead, that shaky jello had other plans for us. Al is currently in the hospital being treated for a recurrence of his atrial fibrillation issue that he had years ago. We had really thought that was all behind us, but apparently the fates have other ideas.

Briefly, he had symptomatic a-fib starting many years ago, but it was always kept under control with medication. Until 2009, that is, when he started going into a-fib much more often. At that time he underwent a procedure called cardiac ablation, which solved the problem. Until now. We have all fingers and toes crossed that he will convert back to a normal heart rhythm quickly, and we can proceed on our way. Well wishes will be gratefully received! I hope to have a positive update tomorrow.
