As for the EKG, I haven't heard back about them yet. I dropped off the monitor yesterday at the ER.
Also, this evening, I went to Sears, and got a far too large credit line, 6 months 0%, and purchased a new water heater and installation. The contractor should call tomorrow and set up a time. I was going to just use my regular credit card, but despite the payment I made Friday night being processed today, I didn't get the corresponding increase in available credit yet. Randy at Sears made it really easy for me, and even gave me the sale price listed on the sign for the display model even though the sale ended Saturday. I was in and out in less than half an hour. I also got a maintenance plan that gets me a service call every year for 5 years, hopefully which will keep it in better shape than the current one. Water here is hard on water heaters, so I hear.
