Mr. Fierro: If I was a couch potato and I was 80 years old if I was a couch potato right now, I would not even be able to do what I do, but I am active. I have been working out my whole life with high school sports, college sports, my friend and I kayak on the ocean couple of times a week.


Dr. Adams: And that is why you want to keep you mitral valve and not have a replacement because that is the only way you can do all that stuff.


Mr. Fierro: Absolutely, I am not ready to sit down yet.
