Hi my name is fred bush and i just had my second heart valve in less than ten years. My first surgery was in 2005 i aquried rehamatic fever as a child which weaken my heart valves. The second sterum crack was for endocrtais which turned the heart valves into a vegation as my cardilogists told me. Living with heart is a challenge but my goal is to overcome heart diease and live an inspired life . My motto is a poem by Langston Huhges. "My Motto" by Langston Huhges , I play it cool and I dig all jive(heart disease) that's the reason I stay alive. My motto is as I live and learn is to dig (heart surgery)and be dug in return. Thank you for reading my rant in the words of Adam keep on ticking or clicking if you have a mechanical valve.
