I tend to be less forthcoming about my health issues but BBBH has plastered my "condition" all over her facebook page, so I might as well open up.
An earlier exception to my reticence was published here four years ago when I had the corneal tissue transplant because that is an interesting and relatively rare surgery, and besides the readers might have gotten a good laugh at the pictures of the swollen and bandaged me.
I have according to my cardiologist a very strong heart but a seriously occluded aortic valve as well as some arterial narrowing in the heart. Surgery is the only remediation.
I got a call today from the office of the cardiovascular surgeon. They will see me on December 22. The good news in this is that I will likely not be admitted for surgery before Christmas. The bad news is that I will likely not be admitted for surgery before Christmas.
Further good news is that JoAnn's facebook friends and relatives have flooded her notes with good wishes and more importantly promises of prayers for our well-being. This is appreciated immensely, more than I can tell.
Having started this here, I shall feel compelled to keep you updated.
