The Tin-Man gets a newer heart

 #TBT – 18 years ago I had open-heart surgery. Everything’s been great, until just recently. I have to go in next Monday (4/3) for more work on the ticker, at Yale. I actually feel OK at this point. I’ll be having my aortic and pulmonic valves replaced (for the second time), plus a goodly part of my aorta. The problem with the aorta is called an aneurism, and I’ve got a great surgeon whose specialty is aortic aneurisms, so I should be in very good shape.

Larry has helped me set up this blog and will make updates that will automatically post to Facebook, so if anyone’s interested, we’ll keep you in the loop.  You can also subscribe to this blog down at the bottom left of this page.

As before, you don’t know how strong you are until you’re put up against the wall, so here’s to knowing just how strong I am – just in case I had forgotten. Can’t wait to get this done, and be on the other side, better than ever. 🙂
