Please keep Joey B in your prayers...
Joey B has a heart problem. Joe explains:
"I was in the hospital about 3-4 weeks ago for my ticker, and well it's gotten worse so I need surgery on my valve. I'm pencilled in for surgery on Oct 4th. Just FYI, it's the mitral valve, and they have to trim excess tissue off the flaps which was caused by the prolapse, and repair the cords that work the valve. All of that is causing sever blood regurgitation, hence my bod isnt getting enough blood making me fatigued and generally blah. I have one more test to get done. Good thing is that these valve repairs are common now, so I'm not worried - just want to feel better again. So pass on my thanks to all those who wrote such nice things, and I'll pray to the Big Guy to send some love back their way!"
