Subject: RE: BS: Monsey's (non) Kosher Chicken Crisis
Thank you Ron.

Grose....I've had several heart surgeries including a bypass and a valve replacement. As I also have an unrepaired and unrepairable aortic dissection the valve surgery was extremely high risk. I had one of the finest surgeons in the US using the latest in surgical technique and equipment. Prior to surgery we talked at length and after listing the Top 30 possible side effects starting with death and ending with loss of kidney functions, I asked him point blank, "Do you think I can make it through this surgery?"

He replied after some thought, "I can assure you we will take the best care of you and I will do the best job possible. But whether you'll make it through or not, I have no idea."

I knew he was the right man at that moment.
