    Default Back to Beth Israel in Boston

    So, that heart monitor they implanted in John a few weeks ago sent off alarms today and Beth Israel wants John to go there right away. I assume they are implanting a pace maker.

    What a nightmare. We are 90 miles away. Had to find a driver. My usual limo driver was in Natick. Could not get anyone else. So, My usual driver is coming back here and will take John. I will stay here to keep the farm running.

    Ikoiko this time he is going to 185 Pilgrim Rd.
    West Campus..Deaconess building
    She said it was across or maybe in the Farr building. Looking at my notes I am not sure....I have been on hold to Beth Israel for half an hour...trying to clarify where he is going.. I think she said the Farr building was a brick building

    She said he should go in and find the info desk and someone would take him in a wheelchair.

    I will be nuts until I hear from him. At least this time we have warning so he has his iPad and his cell phone and their chargers. There is a frost prediction around here to night so I will be turning on the irrigation late tonight to hopefully protect the crops. Then it will turn summertime hot so I have to water the greenhouses every day. And pick haricot verts for saturday’s Two markets. Mighty Mouse is here again.

    It is scared to send John off to make his way alone into the surgery.

    What a nightmare, Linda. I feel for you, but feel for John also. I know he is nervous and scared.

    Many prayers are on their way for you. How well I understand your fear and anxiety, especially since you can't accompany John. Remember to take care of yourself too, Linda. Thinking of both of you.

    Love & Light,

    I hope everything goes smoothly, Linda.

    Does this map help in any way?

    Hi Linda, I was out all day. I am not too familiar with BIDMC's West Campus and Farr building, but I hope your husband got to the correct place with ease. Best to you both.

    Linda, I hope you have heard from John and, if he had a procedure, his doctor.

    I am sorry that the two of you are separated at this critical time.

    Thanks. He did. We communicated every hour until sleep told us both it was time to shut up! They must be doing the implant this morning.
    The building is exactly where he stayed last time. I figured my notes out by finding your previous post that you answered. In that post I told you that we went from Binney ave to the Farr Building! Bingo! So I hung up the phone where I was still waiting for customer care! I had answered my own question in a post to you!
