Reflecting on my medical passage and
how a community’s heart carried me through. By Bill Sell

Let’s discard the word “recovery” to describe my present condition. The better word is “active” as in “fully active” or “more fully active” than I was before I knew I was in trouble. Medical people advise me that I won’t recover. One recovers from a fracture or flu. From a genetic condition there is no escape, only management.

Heart Cut Away large view

While all this has surprised “skinny” me and my wide-eyed friends, it was a gift. Compared to other dreadful conditions, my heart surgery was a ride in the park. I write about the ride, the park, and how the village gives the process a meaning larger than survival….

Help MilwaukeeRenaissance help Milwaukee

Over its two-year history, MilwaukeeRenaissance has been entirely self-funded, depending primarily on the generous gift of time from its many contributors. As our list of contributors has grown, so has our readership, and we are looking for ways to use the power of the internet to help local (and global!) individuals and organizations further their pursuit of social and economic justice. Help us help, by joining in the conversation; gather, celebrate, and donate at the Coffee House on Saturday - admission $5 or your more generous contribution - or use the white “Donate” button at the top of the MilwRen Sidebar.

See you there!
