EnPulse it is!

Yesterday my g-pa found out he needed to get a pacemaker and this morning he had the implant. All went well. He has an EnPulse single chamber IPG. Hopefully, he will get some energy back. He was diagnosed with AF (Atrial Fibrillation). They are treating the fast arrhythmias with medications and the slow ones with a pacemaker. His lower limit on his IPG is 60 BPM. When he found out he needed a pacemaker, he said, "It better be Medtronic. My daughter and two granddaughters work there!"

I tried calling him tonight, but no answer. Probably getting some rest. Talked to mom and she said the implant went great. It took only 30 minutes. He's staying overnight and is scheduled to go home tomorrow around noon.
