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.
