thanks for all the good thoughts guys. everything went fine. took about four hours for the procedure. apparently my heart developed a new electrical pathway that was screwing up my normal rhythm and causing problems. they went into the heart with catheters through arteries in the groin and once they found where the problem was used high frequency microwaves to kill off the nerve cells that are not supposed to be there. hopefully that takes care of the problem once and for all. a little r and r for a few days and i should be good to go. this getting old is for the birds!
