(Works for me! Fun pun. Pacemakers are getting so sophisticated. They are much smaller than they used to be. The batteries can last up to 11 years. And, some come with a built in defibrillator! My Dad could have used one of those ones. A lot of people think that they’re supposed to prevent heart attacks, but their main purpose is just to regulate the heart beat. If my Dad had had one with a built in defibrillator he’d probably still be with us today.
No new clue words, but they were all jumbled well. All the jumblings look new to me. I had to think some on “airway”. The answer letter layout wasn’t optimum today. I felt it was a little obvious.
