We all know the heart thing is just a ruse to cover up the surgery he's really having. He's finished hormone treatment and he's ready for the sex reassignment surgery now.

I'll be pulling for you Revvy. You've been an inspiration to me around here. My dad suffered a heart attack about a year and a half ago and they put 7 stints in his heart. He was out of the hospital in 3 days and back better than he had been in less than a month. You'll be chasing the nurses in no time.

Hey Revvy,

I am a noob but I have learned so much from you. Thanks.

I am pulling for you...

May your nurses be two Redhead penthouse pets wearing fishnets

I'm new to the site but I've already enjoyed a number of your posts. I'm a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist and I do the anesthesia for these surgeries all the time. I'm sure you'll do well and most people handle the pain just fine. Speedy recovery!

John

Hey, Revvy: I'm going to try to get a picture of my surgery if you try to get one of yours. We post them and whoever pukes loses. Winner gets homebrew.

Rev,

My family and friends are praying for you tonight and until you are back here giving your much needed advise.

It is now more evident that ever that God works in mysterious ways!

As I set here typing this evening, my father is in the ICU recovery after having open surgery to replace an Aortic Aneurysm. His surgery was this morning and it went great according to the Doc. When I got home this evening I was thinking about it too much and decided to jump on HBT to take my mind off of everything and stumbled across your post. I never go to the "general chit-chat" board, but I did tonight and I am glad I did.

You and your family are in our prayers tonight and I am sure you will be better than ever after your surgery. I hope we can discuss a nice beer recipe I want to call "Circulatory Celebration Ale" when you get back to the boards!

God Bless!


Brian

What all did they do at the screening? Imaging? Blood tests?

You've got someone on here that'll be contacted by someone there so we'll know when you're through surgery and hasslin' doctors and stuff, right?
