    I had a different doc doing the procedure a couple days ago. Previous doc went into geriatrics or something. So, I'm half-sitting on the gurney in the 'event room,' all wired and ready to go, and the doc is verifying medical history, etc. Looks at me and asks, "are you a runner, or do you swim or cycle?"

    "Yes, I cycle. Why do you ask?"

    "Because your heart rate is 52. Good job!"

    Wife, sitting there, says, "Busted!"

    That's an understatement. I had my first about 5 years ago and decided to do it unsedated. I just couldn't see wasting much of my day as well as that of my wife (plus I was afraid of someone taking advantage of me when I was loopy ) And you know what - the prep was still the worst part. The discomfort during the procedure was mild compared to that of the prep. Doc gave a pretty good running travelogue, too, as I watched the monitor.

    That 5 year mark takes a long time to come- then you wonder why as you get on with the rest of your life that has been in Limbo.

    Kurt, it was an honor to meet and ride with you and Bill last summer. Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary.
