I'm going in for a "valve job" and I believe that they will lube my chassis. That should make my travels smoother, don't you think??? :-}. In case you are not into my humor, in plainer English--I am having my congenitally malformed aortic heart valve replaced. Ralph will post updates regularly on my progress. I do not want visitors in the hospital and will post on here when I am ready to have visitors after returning home. As I will be more vulnerable to infections, please do not visit if you are sick with a cold or whatever or are aware that you have been exposed to something contagious. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces soon.
