I am scheduled for surgery on Friday, July 15th at the Cardiac Innovations & Structural Heart Center at the Heart Hospital of Edward-Elmhurst Heart. This will be an out-patient procedure to implant a Watchman device to treat my atrial fibrillation (AFib) and reduce stroke risk without the need for medication. I will be staying in hospital overnight after surgery. Don and I will be tested for Covid-19 on Tuesday July 12th and must self-quarantine from the time the test is taken until I leave for the hospital Friday morning. I will return home on Saturday, July 16th but, for obvious reasons, will be convalescing for a while after that. Our resident pups will be home and well cared for . . . no worries on that . . . but the Safehouse will be closed to doggy visitors from Sunday, July 10th through Saturday, August 13th. Thank you for your understanding and patience. . . Dahna Betts
