STUPID pacemaker.

Charlie's pacemaker is playing up even more than it was before.
At about 3am, his heart rate started plummeting to high 30s/low 40s.
The pacemaker should kick in before this happens, and keep his
heartrate above 70, and up to now, this is what has been happening.
I just hope that this new problem might make the doctors more inclined
to get a move on with whatever needs doing with his pacemaker - rather
than keeping us hanging around for another week before anything is done.
Oh, and Charlie's drain is still draining a lot - 360mls yesterday,
and another 50mls already this morning.
I have a feeling this is going to be a long job.
