Finally have the opportunity to chat directly, you are legend. I'm Bronx born but also raised my family in the Harlem Valley, around Pawling did endless runs to the Hudson side of the county for my kids sports activities. Actually I'm at 80% rounded off from the 82 but I was given the 60% PRIOR to my surgery by an outside firm that just read my echo from my cardiologist. This was granted about 5 months BEFORE I underwent, in Columbia Presbyterian, a double bypass, Aortic and Mytrial valve replacement(MOO) a maze procedure to stop the A-fib I had developed and they plugged a small hole I had since birth. The surgery went very well, I went through service groups available in South Carolina to explain the severity of the operation to see if it was rated correctly. Again I was seen in Willmington by an outside agent for the VA that agreed with the echo supplied but felt the 60% for the heart sufficed. Im retired from a Municipality and worked after for a service company and also drove a limo. I can't do either job any longer, just don't have the stamina, beginnings of emphysema are taking its toll. Oh, really bad hearing too, finally admitted it was service related for my year in country back in 69 but rate me at 0%. I'm a proverbial doorknob.
A real pleasure to finally make contact with you, very envious of where you are late Sept into late Nov. The shores the Carolinas are nice but just flat and most times tree-less. Looking forward to hearing from you and Thanks for giving yourself and your time to all of us.
