It is really nice having my brother Robin in town visiting for a few days. It is unfortunate that the circumstances of his visit are not what I would have hoped for. Robin is facing his own serious heart issues.
through various tests and what not the doctors have determined he requires open heart surgery to replace one of the valves in his heart. In the past he has had 2 heart attacks. This same testing done by the doctors has shown that the damage to the heart muscle is more extensive than previously thought. The valve that needs replacing is amid this damaged tissue.
The angiogram will allow the doctors to decide if the open heart surgery is a viable option
