    Friends I met with a great heart specialist Friday and am scheduled for the Cath on Wed. the 18th at 10:00 AM. Dr. was very positive and said he had hopes he could bring the heart back to better function. My squeeze (how the heart constricts) is 28% where most people are 50-80%. Has hopes with renewed blood flow will bring it back, don't know but thinks it could happen. Will not plan on by-pass unless the balloons and shunts don't do the job.
    I have a problem with Dr... I am a huge Ohio State fan and he is a Penn. State fan, big time and has a Nittany Lion statue in front of office. Said if I need by-pass the Dr. will be a Michigan grad and all medical work will be done in West Virginia.
    Saw on TV tonight, "There are a lot of things to think about, nothing to worry about." Think about it, God is the GREAT PHYSICIAN.
    Thanks for your prayer and thoughts,
    Joe

    Dr. Joe,

    Still keeping you in prayer for a wonderful resolution to all this.

    God gave you a wonderful sense of humor, that's a fact... He's not done giving you the best of His blessings.
