    training partner/friend having open heart surgery

    One of my training partners is going in for open heart surgery. They said he has a blocked valve or something. The docs said it's not steroid related since he has a family history of it and his diet's not too great. I just felt like posting this. I'm not religious at all but if you want to say a little prayer or whatever maybe it would help.

    He's late 30's. He went in the other day for a gall bladder infection and somehow they found it.

    Oh ya, valve jobs are pretty routine these days, but it's pretty invasive, so his chest will be sore for a few weeks. But really, the biggest thing to worry about is that the docs don't leave a sponge or chair or something in his chest cavity, but they're pretty good about that sort of thing these days . . .
    Ya, it's pretty dramatic, but nothing to fret over. Nevertheless, best wishes . . .

    Thanks everyone.

    Sometimes when I see stuff like this, I feel like I'm looking at my future. I know the docs said it wasn't from AAS, but who really knows. I have another friend who used a lot of steroids in the 70s and 80s and he's all ****ed up now. Heart problems, kidney problems. But at the same time, I know I'm not going to change. Just makes you think sometimes.

    I don't expect you to change baby. I love you just the way you are. Only you can make those kind of decisions. I think a lot of people think like that to tell you the truth. What one person may see as moral and right, another would disagree. I guess that's what makes the world go round. I think it would be kind of boring and bland world if we were all alike right?
