Will definitely be praying for him to pull through this procedure with flying colors, and for his family.

I will post as soon as I know something. He indicated it was a routine procedure and that there shouldn't be any problems.

Portastorm is alive and well. He came through the procedure well and the doc thinks it was successful. Porta asked me to convey his thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers.

My deepest gratitude for all the good thoughts and prayers sent my way. Am home now recovering and it appears the procedure (catheter ablation) was successful. Admittedly it appears it's gonna take a week or two before I'm back to normal as the work done was extensive. So ... thank you everyone for being there for me!

The procedure itself wasn't a big deal ... but the recovery thing is kicking my butt right now! Somehow I had it in my head that I would be up and around and normalized within several days of being released from the hospital ... knucklehead that I am. :lol:
