About Me: Male, 63, Central, MA, member since Aug 2010
I suffered from AVRT (atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia ) for 54 years. I joined the forum after scheduling an ablation, and so I could learn more about the procedure. Married to my high school sweetheart for 41 years, I have two great kids, 3 grandchildren.
[More] I enjoy outdoor activities, and speed skating, both ice and inline. I am an electronics designer for one of the few remaining consumer audio manufacturers in the US.
Just a quick note to say hi! "Tin man" you referred to in a post on "ticking heart sound" assumes these younger people might remember the Wizard of Oz - well, for all I know there is a current "tweet" fad or some other media that keeps this story alive.... hope you are doing well and recall reading in one of your replies about winning some athletic event, congratulations - keep up the good work.

Thanks for the CPAP explanation, guess I had it about right except for the "details" ;) As for pulling the tube out, if you are referring to the breathing tube that is inserted during some surgeries, I'd not call it "strange feeling" more like painful... or as the doctor likes to say, some discomfort. See you all around the communities, I see you too have more than one health concern - could have something to do with age.
I've been keeping an eye on the webcams over Boston and NY and it looks unreal. A couple of my friends have just returned from a vacation in Cuba and they were hit badly out there. Their hotel got flooded and the roofs were all brought down. Us brits complain about our weather but we have nothing compared to you guys. I have a great aunt in Boston so we are hoping they will be ok. Least your son and his wife are safe! well hope the storm dies out soon and it all clears up over there.
