Modern Medical Miracles

As I've mentioned before, yawn, my father was a surgeon. A surgeon working and perfecting techniques way before others. Please forgive my pride, but don't expect me to stop.

This morning I had a Heart Cath for an impending heart valve repair or replacement. When my father was alive this would have been thought science fiction, but he saw it happening in the nearer future than the few others that even thought it possible then. Today, the heart cath is considered a minor procedure and it was.

In less than seven hours, much of that time was paperwork, scheduling, post procedure observation and such, an absolutely outstanding group of doctors, nurses and technicians performed a heart catheterization which accomplished two things, measuring blockage, etc. and pressure.

This afternoon I was home with little soreness and a wealth of information that the doctors say will shorten and simplify my coming operation.

Medical science is incredible.

So is Riverside Methodist Hospital: Riverside

My father did a lot of surgery there.
