I've now had three AF cardioablations at Texas Heart, the late Dr. Denton Cooley's brainchild in Houston, Texas. I've had two ablations in just the past six months. I'm wondering what the record number of ablations is for a single patient. I want to go for the record before I croak. Please note: In the States, "croak" is a euphemism for "Kicking the bucket". Kicking the bucket is a euphemism for one's curtain call , the "bucket" reference targeted to the so-called "Bucket List", the so-called bucket list being a compilation of things an individual hopes to "check off" prior to the dance with grim reaper. Just to be clear.
