Today is Victor Chang's 87th birthday. Dr. Chang was a pioneer in modern heart transplant surgery.
Coincidentally, today I had my annual visit with my cardiologist. She gave me a clean bill of health and even told me I had her blessing if I wanted to climb the Alps again next summer. A theme of this blog is acceptance -- accepting the things you can't change. Another theme of this blog is that life is constantly changing. If you don't like it, it will be different soon. The only thing permanent about life is that it's temporary. So live it to the fullest while you can. Listen to your body and treat it with the respect it deserves. And, for God's sake, if you have a heart condition, talk to your doctor.
