Well, it is decided..Completed my pre-op and registration today, & they will do The Watchman implant Thursday morning. Should take about 5 hrs from arrival to 'wake-up' if everything goes according to plan. Did tell me to pack an overnite bag in case I go into afib when I come out of anesthesia and they have to keep me to get me out of afib.

Positive thoughts for this procedure. I know you were debating it and then dealing with your brothers passing and service etc.
Well, I never really wanted to do this, and still don't, and in no way do I have any fear of death but the over riding issue was the increased risk of my poor wife having to care for me for years & years if I have a debilitating (not fatal) stroke. She has enough on her plate looking after a healthy greybeard, much less dealing with one that might be so bad off he can't wipe his own butt....

We're expecting great results, and looking forward to hearing about how the procedure worked out.
