Doctors discovered Bowden, 87, needed a pacemaker installed after he was admitted to the hospital after a case of dehydration and nausea from antibiotics for a swollen salivary gland.

“My heart (beat) had gotten so low, they had never seen it that low on me,” Bowden said. “That pacemaker will help solve that. I hope I get to feeling better and I think I am going to be much stronger now. It will mess me up for a little bit, but I hope it solves everything.”
