Hi, Soninlaw:

Sorry I didn't reply before now.

As I care for patients receiving pacemakers every working day, I would agree with your questioning. It is a quality of life issue that truly has to be made - most likely by you. There comes a time where the question needs to be asked to what end? This may not be that time for her (or for you). But, it is a question that needs to be asked.

My dad has dementia (among other conditions). He's more confused all the time. In my opinion, I don't think a pacemaker would be in his best interest. That's just me.

Best of luck and prayers to each of you!

Mike Davis
