Default New word perhaps for fellow IAP members

CABG - pronounced cabbage. It is a coronary artery bypas and graft. I had four on Monday. Quite amazing that I actually have no real pain except for sneezes and coughing. I am in awe that we can do these procedures routinely and in my case so far perfectly.

Sorry about the grizzly photos.
Right after
Day two

I am being released today Thursday. After some rest Iíll get back to pens very, very carefully at first. My surgeon will get my best pen for sure.

A speedy recovery! Your doctor has a great sense of humor. He had you in stitches!
