We will NOT be hosting any games this year, due to restrictions with my recovery from open heart surgery last week, which I assume everyone knows about. However, I'm home, improving and no aortic valve replacement is going to prevent ME from going. So I will be there to shop, socialize and tell tall tales that really happened. I will be hosting games at Fall In, theme games in fact, courtesy of one General Garibaldi.

Weird thing is that since right before my medical incarceration three weeks ago, my sales have exploded. Go figure.

Regards, Colonel Bill

Open heart?

Not a TAVI?

Open heart means the interior of your ticker was exposed and was pointing at the ceiling of the operating theatre (OR, over the Pond). That is hairy, needs bypass and very fast work!

If you are home a week later, you are a product of current medical advances. Any cut is way down below? All done by clever X ray docs on a long catheter?

Get well soon and contribute more here. Best wishes

Well, yes. The TAVR is n0ormally used to correct valves that are shrinking and closing up, particularly in the elderly who might not stand the shock of open heart. My valve was expanding and supposedly (at 63) I am a young man (I sure as hell don't feel like it). So I got the rib cracking open heart procedure.

I went home fourth day after surgery, so medical science has advanced a lot. I remember when you could spend several weeks in the hospital, but maybe the Star Fleet Medical campus that did this is simply real good.

Not completely 100 % yet, but the procedure seems to have fixed a lot of other minor ailments (high liver enzyme, etc) so I am actually feeling exceptional at three weeks post op.

Ciao, Colonel Bill
