Sometimes… Life is just too darn fun!!!

For example, I just received two wonderful pictures from Dr. Robert Saeid Farivar, a leading cardiac surgeon at Saint Alphonsus Health System in Boise, Idaho, with Mike Gabler from Survivor 43!  As you can read in this post, Mike is a Heart Valve Specialist who is a contestant on Survivor which is one of my favorite tv shows.

It turns out that Mike is Dr. Farivar’s representative from Edwards Lifesciences, a leading manufacturer of heart valve devices including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). As Dr. Farivar wrote to me, “Mike Gabler is my rep. I thought you would like this picture.”

I didn’t just like the picture… I loooooooved it!!!

Then, a few days later, Mike Gabler sent me this picture in which he is sporting a HeartValveSurgey.com hat and pullover.
