Got My Date Already!

This past Tuesday morning, the pacemaker specialist called me to say that my unit transmitted the night before informing her that it needed to be replaced due to a low battery. This afternoon, I received a call from the doctor’s scheduler asking me to come in for surgical replacement of the pacemaker/defibrillator next Thursday, March 24th (my dad’s birthday, no less). I will be out of the office for one week until Friday, April 1st.
The Carmelite Fathers have agreed to take both daily Masses and any funerals that come up.
I would appreciate you keeping me in your prayers. Many thanks!
