    Dear Gator friends, just a short note to let you know I will be out of order or commission for a few weeks. Going down to Miami tomorrow to have open heart surgery - replacement of the mitral valve with a pig valve by a specialist, Dr, Joseph Lamalas who does this microscoply vs. sawing into the sternum. Hope this doesn't mess up my Sat. football games. Say a good Gator prayer for me and as Arnold says, "|'ll be back"!!!

      UPDATE:

      My initial surgery was cancelled as I had a viral infection. I have been rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 30th At the Univ. of Miami Hospital by Dr. Joseph Lamales. cardiothoracic surgeon for the minimally invasive surgery to replace the mitral value with a pig valve. I will be going down to Miami the 29th for preop, then admitted to the hospital the next morning with surgery in the early afternoon. I have been on antibiotics, steroids, etc. etc. to get over the infection.

          Dr. Lamalas is a fantastic surgeon. You are in excellent hands. Wish you a quick recovery.

            I'm an inch away from the same thing. A not pleasant but necessary thing to do. My very best wishes for a speedy recovery. I hope while you're under anesthesia your brain will re-circuit and you'll find that you are a Gator after all. :)

              Ox, our Gators are at least a little bit responsible for this sad turn of events. Seeing the Gators rise while they get beaten by the cellar dwellers of the ACC has broken the hearts of more than a few Canes. It almost just killed Richt.

                Per policy, I cannot check on the well-being of fans of hated teams. Not even I am above the policy.

                  Best of luck to you. My mom had a cow valve put in a few years ago and she's doing well. She only moos every once in a while, so you shouldn't have to worry about oinking too often in public.:zambo:

                          You're a national treasure Daytona Cane.

                          Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

                          May the blessings of the Lord and his compassion be with you always.

                            You'll be fine! You Canes always find a way to come back and annoy us.

                            But seriously, my heart and prayers are with you.

                                Prayers for you, DaytonaCane. You've got the right combination of surgeon, procedure, and patient feistiness that I'd expect you to be back to true form in no time.

                                        DaytonaCane you'll do fine - I went thru the same procedure except my doc missed the memo on not cracking open the chest! It really was easier than I thought and now I pay homage to my porker ancestry at breakfast! You'll do fine, piece of cake. Come on back when you've added to your family tree and we can work on getting you the Heart of a Gator!

                                          Hope all goes well and you’re back to enjoying your Saturday’s in the fall quickly. First time I think I’ve ever routed for a Cane, but I’m routing for you big time.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
