R. is having an aortic valve transplant today and happily, and luckily, got chosen for the less invasive procedure. (Which is still in clinical trials.) We're feeling very positive.
His photo show opens next week at G2 Gallery in Venice, CA and you're all invited to the opening party next Friday at 6:30. Amazingly the doctors have told us that R. might be recovered enough in seven days to attend.
