Been a nurse for over 30 years, spent the first 16 years in ICU, mostly post cardiac surgery recovery. There are so many people to help you through the whole process and valve surgery is fairly common, you will do well. I will be thinking good thoughts for you...if you post pictures, you may blow Dan's pictures out of the water!!! Best of luck with all your tests.

GROG will they use a brontosaurus donor valve as a replacement?

Keep us posted on your progress Ernie.

My thoughts are with you Buddy. Let me know when you want the King Cake sent. Take care.

Thanks ya'll.

Brontosaurus valve would be great, but not too many of them around anymore.

El Jefe, GROG not sure if GROG should have King Cake before surgery to relieve stress, or after surgery to celebrate successful surgery.

Wow I don't look here for awhile and things get crazy.

Kraken, its good to hear there is hope for you to recover. You've been through the mill and now its time to bake the bread. Keep moving that's the best way to recover. Keep us informed.

GROG, we send you lots of hugs through the air. Take your camera and put your name on it. Give it to the anesthesiologist when he talks to you before surgery. They are board and don't have to be sterile so they can take a few photos or get someone to do it for them. Best wishes for you to be good as new soon.

Wendy

Grog
I'm sure Wendy or Mad Dog could make you a sweet valve!

All kidding aside, wishing you the best my friend.
Keep us updated.

They probably knock GROG out with rock so GROG not feel a thing.

Bowana hope surgery go well for GROG.

Thanks everybody. Got a meeting with the cardiologist on Tuesday, so GROG have a better idea after that of the timeline when this is all going to happen.

Hey Ernie, It sounds like you got time to go on a nitro fueled
night of Drugs, Girls & Booze with us before you go under the knife
get a note from your doctor, burn it & make it a Saturday night of pure mayhem
with the crew from Hell!
