Interrogated the pacemaker at Dr. Del Negro’s office, he said all is going well. It felt horrible when he switched it off and I went on my 37 bpm heart rate.

In the evening, after dinner in Georgetown with Emad, the AbuHamdeh’s and Mardam-Bey’s I felt my heart race, with sweat breaks. I called Kaiser and got an appointment for the following day at 8am.
