The aortic valve is blocked for sure. Doc has said that full open chest surgery would be needed if the blockage is too bad. Right now after doing things like mowing the grass chest feels like someone put an air compressor in it. If the valve is real bad, a new surgery date will be scheduled. I think Dec 12th would be a good date. All that I would miss is late ML season. With all my deductables met for 2013, surgery would have to be before Dec 31st. Pig valve is the replacement part. I hope if one is needed a good strong boar is the donor , I can't see me with a sow part......
Son is going down to S. Ohio next weekend to try to take the 150 class buck he has on camera. There are several shootable bucks and I've never been too particular when it comes to freezer meat.
