Wicked Zombies


By The End of the Week I Will Be Part Zombie

I am scheduled for heart surgery Wednesday morning. At that time I will have my aortic valve repaired, and a section of my aorta replaced with either a pig, cow, or synthetic section of blood vessel. In short, i will become either part undead, or part cybernetic. My preference is for the cow tissue, but the surgeon says he won't know what is most appropriate until he sees what my heart looks like. 

I am writing here instead of at my blog, Zombie Logic, because I really don't want people i know to see how I feel about this. At first I suppose I was a little angry. My cholesterol and all my vitals are excellent because I eat well and take care of myself, but I have a congenital heart defect. But after my initial anger, I felt very fortunate that it was found. My aorta has swelled up to over 6.3 centimeters. meaning for a long while now I have lived every day with the specter of sudden death looming over me and never knew it. 

Also, I think it's slightly cool that I will soon be either part bovine or swine-ine. I've always enjoyed this community and wanted to post my feelings here just to get it out there so it doesn't fester inside me.

Glad to hear you're home and surviving!  We'll order up your blood of choice and send it right over! :-)

Ha! (my inner ex-pat says gawd save the queen!) 
Glad to hear you're recovering... and still 100% human (for what that's worth!).

Thank you to all for your concern and well wishes. I am home now after receiving a mechanical valve replacement and part of a human artery. I am now a weak, hemophiliac vampire who has survived using other peoples' bodies to save my own. So, basically, I'm a member of the British royal family.

Yo man, I found your post very touching, and your attitude very refreshing. It reminded me that my great grandmother received a part of a pig heart many, many years ago, and she had many wonderful years with us a result.(that was in the 80's!!)  In the end, it wasn't her heart that failed her. 
Best wishes to you my friend.

Our bodies are frail things.  In the beginning God made us strong and powerful, impervious to death and disease.  He gave us the understanding of beauty and truth and wonder and love.  Sadly, that sense of wonder lead one astray and the other's love condemned us all to the conditions that affect us today.  

Ten years ago you would not have good chances to survive this condition.  30 years ago death would almost be certain.

Today, we are good at fixing these problems.  God willing, you will be fine.  Remember that good eating, exercise, medicine, and all cannot defeat genetics.  But, the will to live another day, faith in the God who created us, and the love of family, friends, and caring people carries us all from one day to the next.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and all who suffer in this fallen world.

See you in a couple of weeks.

Checking in, just in case anyone had an update. Thoughts, prayers, and crossed fingers until then. :-)

Best wishes.  I'm glad they caught and I'm glad they can go in and fix it.  

Get well -- fast.

Glad they caught it in time. Best of luck to you and hope you have a fast recovery. The Dead live, and so will you!

Stopping IN

It's been awhile since I have been home here on Wicked Zombies...I've been doing so much searching within this outer world of life...

   I've since gotten re-married and have been working back in security for the last couple of years. Have started back writing again and have purchased an actual house. It's hard being away from my family even though I need to work and support them, but it's a shame a person has to work so much that they miss their kids growing up...
