    I loved meeeting him. I enjoyed our person to person conversation, one human being talking to another human being. I was very impressed with his skill level and felt very re-assured when he told me what he thought was going on with my situation. If it comes time to deal with my abdominal aneurysm, I hope he will be willing to support me.
