Being a doctor you should know you never flush a bad heart...you repair it!
My sister had a heart valve replaced at Akron City a few years back. Everyone said because of her lungs failing that she should be allowed to die comfortably. The head surgeon of the coronary department at City said that the lungs were failing because the heart had a bad valve. He took on the surgery and she's here today because of him..vibrant and very much alive...
I lost a brother back in the seventies from heart failure when he was 16. They can do so much more now than then.
Give a call to Waterloo they are a Christian owned/operated company and I have NEVER heard anything bad about them.

She was on the forum asking about "problems" with her tranny and she got replies from others and "her" mechanic (who she trusted) saying don't bother as "the transmission is toast". I tried to help and heavily suggested she read your posts. She probably junked the car on her mechanic's suggestion.
I haven't seen her here since..

You're probably right. Some people just won't take advice, or only take the advice of the last person they spoke to. I constantly found that with my interest in computers; I would advise on the purchase of items like software and peripherals, only to find that the salesman had up-sold the customer to a "better model". One friend ended up with a completely unsuitable printer, contrary to my advice, and despite an association of more than 30 years.
Electronics and computers are my first love (after my wife of course).
I know the frustration of honestly telling someone you know you CAN help and finding
they chose not to listen... I have friends that are constantly frustrated with WINDOZ that I know could easily migrate to Ubuntu from knowing their interests. They put up with viruses, malware, constant "updates"(plugging holes in the OS), and sluggish operation when they could be enjoying the Internet. I keep busy keeping them going. The last notebook I cleaned all the nasties off of I also installed a dual boot to Ubuntu... While he was on the road Windows crashed and burned...he finally booted into Linux and the love affair began..
I am forced to use Windows for sites that only support it... (Games , my wife's employers site wants IE8) and older plugins (SVG at kiatechinfo.com), and tech support for others. Beyond that my desktop runs only Linux.
My son ONLY wanted Toyota/Honda/Mazda for his next car. For the amount he had/wanted to spend all he could find was junk with 150k miles and problems all ready.
He didn't want any "unreliable/rustbucket" from Korea (what his friends impressed upon him).
I found a 2008 Hyundai Accent hatchback with a "salvage" title and 27k miles on it for $2200 US$. With minor repairs (sledge hammer was #1 repair tool) and less than $500 in parts...he now LOVES his Korean "baby".
You have to keep an open mind and sometimes look at unconventional answers...
