My life with yoga, poetry, critters, and whatever else comes up.

I spoke with the surgeon this morning and told him to go ahead with the angiogram and placing of the stent in my father's heart, if necessary and/or possible. I realize as does my dad that the angiogram may kill my father and end the whole thing there, or kill his kidneys and put him on dialysis for the rest of his life, but as the doctor (and my father) see it, he is due for a big heart attack sometime soon that would probably kill him anyway. It is his choice. Left to my own devices, I probably wouldn't do it.
