    Weird story.  I'm an Occupational Therapist working in home health care.  I checked the chart on a new patient I was seeing yesterday afternoon, and he was a heart surgery pt with the same surgeon I had!  And he was young, just a couple years younger than me (both in our 50s).  So I talked to him about how we were both members of Dr Bavaria's zipper club, but as I was doing his evaluation, his vital signs were off.  BP low, HR high, so I decided to call his cardiologist.  Which was mine!  I was like, "Hello, this is Anne Birdsong, but I'm not calling you as a patient..." Lol! It was weird.

    I do not believe it was "weird".  I believe you were there, right when you needed to be!
