Hi gang,

Last month, I wrote of what I thought would be a difficult decision about having open heart surgery.
I have 3 arteries that are considerably blocked, and a damaged mitral valve.
Well, it was not so difficult a decision after speaking with the surgeon.
I feel a 93% chance of success is pretty good odds.
I will be having the surgery at Englewood Hospital this Friday, 1/25.
Besides, I
must say to Dave and Frank
that I will need all the strength I can get to keep ahead of that 20-year-old man looking to get back his bones.
Wish me luck!


Yes, Al, we all do wish you luck and I'm sure that many a prayer will
be said in your behalf. Think positive and keep up your strength and spirit!
