I have not been active with VR.org for a while, though still logging in occasionally to see what's happening. I thought of you just now as I was reading over old messages, including a very thoughtful message from you about 10 years ago regarding PVCs. It reminded me that you seemed to educate me with each message, and I was immensely grateful.
My very quick update is that things are going well. My surgery was in May, 2005, so I am 11+ years out, still playing squash and doing other things that remind me how sweet it is to be alive.
