Year 2017 is going down in history and is coming to a end.
My latest experience started as I passed out at the Topsfield Fair. Lucky for me this happened at a place with 2 on call ambulances. Whisked away to the hospital where I was tested resulting in the news that I needed open heart surgery. My genetic bicuspid valve was pooping out and needed to be replaced with a new tricuspid valve. What a shock. I was not excited about the endeavor but had no choice. So here I am, still in recovery. All went well (thanks to marvelous care I got at Lahey Burlington). Naturally, this has caused a delay in rehearsals. I am very happy to be getting back to work and driving.
