Hiya Ernie aka Grog!!!
I am so sorry you are having to go through this but with your sense of humor and brains you will do fantastic. My daughter is a member of the "Zipper Club" also. She had her open heart surgery when she was 15 months old. She had a VSD (ventricular septal defect)(a hole in her heart) that was about the size of a quarter. They used a Dacron patch to fix it. She also had pulmonary artery stenosis (a band of sinew that was compressing the pulmonary artery), they snipped that to release the artery. She also had a slight thickening of one wall of her heart muscle but that cleared up after surgery. She is happy and healthy 9 almost 10 yr old and driving me nuts!!!! She may in the future (when she is near 40 or so) have to have a valve replacement due to the VSD pulling one valve out of shape.
I will never forget that you are the one who gave me my nickname in the 5th grade, Nessie, since we were studying Scotland and the Lochs at that time. LOL
Keep us posted and I will keep you in my prayers.

Ernie, if the tip the waitress who slops your beans 15% of the total bill then your Cardiologist ought to get at least a 20% tip! Enjoyed you blog entries :)
Good luck with the angiogram tomorrow. Hope they can get your valve surgery scheduled soon it doesn't interfere with your job prospect.
PS - about that baldness, try rubbing your head with a paste made from alum and green persimmons. It won't grow any hair but it will shrink your head to a size where the hair you have will fit!
