I just found you note. Actually had a heart transplant! Told by the surgeon easier than a by-bass, (according to him)! It went sensationally. Feel sometimes I am 20 again, a few more aches and pains, Can't say enough about St. Luke's Hospital KCMO, after ten years of struggling, told what they could do and how it would would work, were right as rain. It's not real easy, I expected that, you struggle, but that's life. There is a bright future, one I have now. otherwise probably not! Getting boned up on bloodlines and breeding crosses. The Field decision saddens me, The Tracy thing, I scratch my head. I thought the idea and the effort was to spectacular performance by a great dog. All this dna chicanery, letting the advertisers tail wag the dog on trails confuses me like the U.S. political climate. You guys are my hero's, trailing and falling of horses, snakebites sure impress me, I figure got about 20 years left, I hope to get back in with a decent dog, or at least one I like! before the Transplant, went thru 6 pacemakers/defibulaters,( saved my life at least 12 times in 10 years) 2 stents, one stroke, 2 staph infections. I try to pick my horses judiciously,seen I hell of a lot of rattlesnakes, up close, between my and dogs fortunately not been bit. Now,feel I got room, and time, for new experiences!
