Cory...I have had such incredible support from the fishing community, there is no way I can ever thank you all enough for such kind thoughts and especially your prayers and well wishes.
I go to the hospital tomorrow for pre opt. and then will arrive at Anaheim Regional Hospital at 7am Monday 05-20-19 in preparation for surgery at 9am. My options were reduced to open heart surgery, doing to the fact that I have a 2 valve problem, the Aortic valve has to be replaced, while the Mitral valve has to be either repaired or replaced. Tavr is not an option, nor would my insurance authorize it. Fortunately I am very low risk, very healthy otherwise, and less than 1% risk of problems rising from this surgery.
Thanks again everyone and thank you Bloody Decks for allowing my participation on this forum despite not providing a fish report?
I pray the most that I will return healthy and able to go fishing sometime in the near future. And continue to share my adventures with all on this forum.
