Brother Al Ignatonis from Joe Simone

12/05/19 - Early this morning (December 5th), Sandy drove me to St. Joseph’s Hospital for SVT ablation procedure. This procedure is used to treat abnormal heartbeat. When I was there in the surgery room getting ready for the procedure, atrial fibrillation (AFib) set in. Meds were given to bring out of AFib then two ablations were performed. One for flutter and one for skipping. Will need another ablation which may be more complicated. I didn’t know all of this until Sandy was briefed by the doctor. The outcome so far, is that I have noticed increased heart rate which is good. Follow up with doctors in January.

I am at home now. No heavy lifting (> 10 lbs) and heavy physical activity for one week. So, I may not be able to do productive work at the next Tinkers meeting.
Sorry for such a long message. I’m okay and thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Also, feel free to convey this info to others if they are interested.
