    well, they have determined that im too much of a risk for that procedure i posted before, so they are going to do what is called a TAVR procedure. recovery time will be even faster and i won't have to take blood thinners.
    they are shooting for sometime in feb.......so tomorrow i gotta go to the dentist to make sure my mouth wont cause an infection.
    then on the 19th im going to dallas for several pre op tests.....things like measuring for what size valve they will need and things like that.
    the video i posted last time was of an actual surgery.....this time im including a short animation of the process for those of you who dont like watching the grody stuff.
    i really cant wait to be well again because im seriously sick of feeling like a 69 mustang with a 351 cleveland and a lawn mower carburetor. thats exactly what its like.

    My neighbour Neil who is 53, had your prospective procedure back in July. He is all fine and dandy now, walking briskly up and down the road every day - something I can't do with my Ox heart.

    Thanks for posting- I was just wondering how you were progressing the other day. It's incredible how the body works. Being sick is hard to swallow and much like being imprisoned. So glad to hear your getting fixed up soon.

    Good to hear this, TAVR implants are pretty remarkable really.

    I guess with you doing burnouts then we'll have to start calling you "skidmark".. :)
