The long version of this unfolding drama is: I'm going to have a very dangerous open heart...

I know, because of my episode with cancer last May 10 that so many things change in degree of importance. Priorities change, Things that need to be done NOW, and people that one must take time now to say how much they are appreciated and loved.

I had several people say they could take care of my coach, but I had a lot of difficulty. The person who took care of it had a tough time finding a place to park it and I think a battery may have been ruined by running it dead while parked in a...

Scott you are way ahead if they can perform with a cath instead of splitting your chest open. That hurts like hell! Some caths are inserted through groin and some can be done through your wrist. I have had both ways done. Wrist much better. Groin...
