    Don't think all is gloom and doom.

    Had that happen to my father-in-law last year. After a couple of years of blood thinners he had to get cataract surgery. Took him off the blood thinners and had a stroke 1 day later. They said his irregular heartbeat caused the clot to break off which then caused the stroke.
    They finally did the electrical shock thing and he and his heart is back to normal.

  4. Been through all that at the Cleveland Clinic. With todays procedures, things like that are a lot simpler. Hope and pray things go well as they did for me.
