Maybe because it is a valve site? lol Interesting about the gelweave and your continueing relationship to cowsYou know, I'm glad you mentioned my aorta. Something about valves, they get all the attention. I hardly even mentioned the real life saver: my Gelweave graft. Gelweave: a gelatin protein impregnated woven polyester. Doesn't sound nearly as interesting as a bovine pericardial valve. Well, I did a little research a while back, and guess what: according to specifications from Vascutek, maker of Gelweave grafts, the gelatin is manufactured from certain animals native to, and exclusively raised in Australia, due to Australia having the "most favorable level 1 rating in relation to BSE risk". What is BSE? Mad cow disease.
So, cow valve, cow graft, and not only that, cow insulin as a child!
Indeed, and already switched. We here in Atlanta are lucky, thanks to 'ole Ted, it is a virtual bison metropolis. Add in the Whole Foods surge, and bison is everywhere. Plus, if ever there's a meat for heart patients, bison is the perfect choice: extremely lowfat and high in iron. Now if only the prices would stop skyrocketing...So you are a certain % cow, for sure! Time to switch to bison.
Me too! I enjoyed reading your good news. Your writing style kept me going on. You should consider writing.Wow. I just read your first post for the first time. Happy 1st and then some. I like you write up and it was not very long at all, matter of fact, I like your writing style so it was quite fun to read.
I sometimes felt bad because I too keep changing things all the time, until a friend told me "this is a sign of being alive and creative"!!Thanks Vadim and Eva, very nice to hear. I have actually considered writing, Eva, but I've unfortunately always been my own worst editor, just never can stop changing things. ..........
