I'm Going Under the Knife Again

This Friday I'm having a new heart valve put in. They are going in thru my thigh to do it, it's called TAVR and here is a video.

I gather that valve is like a check-valve, it's main job is to keep the blood from flowing back into the heart between beats. So it isn't a question of whether it will work if they can get it in place. That's much better than worrying about rejection and shit. You know all the nurses will be peaking at your winkie.

Good luck with your heart and your winkie, too! (I'm discovering Bruce has such a dirty mind. I kind of like it.)

Nay nay, In this case I've know several OR nurses and an anesthetist, who told me they all do it.
In this case.

Fargon, Ima have a drink to good luck tonight, and think of you as it goes down oh so smooth.

The docs are now looking at Popdigr's valves for an explanation for his passing out, so, Ima follow this with a little more interest than I normally might.

BTW, the docs think his pain after the fall may be some kind of weird whiplash. It's still bothering him pretty bad. Popdigr can't tolerate opiate pain meds, either.

Surgery went very well. Resting and in for observation overnight. Everyone is optimistic that I can go home tomorrow. Thanks to all for the well wishes!
