@jackiekos Don't be afraid. I have had about 40 procedures on my heart so far, in the last 40 years. Plus probably another hundred images, tests, etc done in facility labs around the US. Plus I take my own BP 2x each day, and pulse, and O2 each day. And measure some heart beat, PVC, skips, tachycardia, Irregular hear beat. And I am still alive, and don't expect to die any time soon. I know that my Gelsolin will one day do me in. The little fibril buggars will get into the nerve between the brain and the heart, and if I am not next door to a major hospital at the moment, I will have about 30 seconds to live. Anyway, I am not afraid, for God and I are on speaking terms. She tells me what she wants me to do, and I say, "Ya gotta be kidding!"
