Saving lives

Loved our common backgrounds of mechanical engineering; saved my life in Oct 2002 in Bethlehem upon receiving me as a victim of ascending aortic aneurysm in an emergency situation; fully explained procedures and results of installing a St Jude's mechanical aortic valve and dacron aorta section; gives post-op hugs and is extremely caring; would love to meet again and our family will always be most grateful for my extended life.
