Doug is not feeling well. He was able to type this pm to me:
Smorgass Bored said:Ray, My wife contacted both doctors lasst Thursday about the study. One wrote her back and said that the trial studay started in May and I was too late to get in. she told the other doctor that I was 63 and currently in the VA hospital. He wrote her back and said, "how old is he, maybe he can Medicare (I can't, yet).
I truly love my autographed jacket and I've had every intention of writing a full medical update on my current condition and to thank all those who wrote the study on my behalf. I also wanted to thank everyone for signing the jacket and being the hope and inspiration that thay've become.
My valves are leaking worse than previously and my heart is pumping at 40%. They won't operate and I checked myself out of the VA against doctor's orders.
At some point, one has to be allowed to chose fo themselves.
Thanks for all thatr you've done. You may post any or all of this PM, I'm whipped. I apologise to those that I've let down.
