boat-anchor-net This week’s net

Well, remember you asked, because I just returned from visiting my cardiologist, and the news isn’t good.

The human heart is fed blood by three arteries, and two of mine are completely occluded. My third artery is 90% occluded so my heart is only getting a trickle of blood. A balloon can’t be inserted into the third artery because that would stop the heart. The only thin thread of hope is if my cardiologist can find a surgeon skilled and brave enough to attempt a risky bypass operation. The ravages of a life in a wheelchair have left me with a fragile chest wall and bones so finding a sucker—surgeon is quite doubtful.

Yep, looks like April was my final Belton. Pity it was so chilly.

Thanks for the note Scott. You told me about some cardiac issues. I’m wondering if this is still a problem, and if you are seeking good care for it. Let us know how you are getting along. 73, K5LYN.
