Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
One Last Thing before I Go...
Drew Silver is one of modern literature’s more pathetic losers. And that’s before he discovers an aortic dissection is about to kill him.
The good news for Silver — which is what everyone, even his daughter, calls him — is that surgery can save his life. There’s a bit of bad news, and part of it is that the procedure would be performed by Silver’s ex-wife’s fiancé. The other is that Silver, who is 44, doesn’t want the surgery.
