How do you fix a broken heart?

In the last couple of months I have been going through some tests on my heart. The results are troublesome: While the part of my heart that pumps blood throughout my body is working fine, the part that shows love and compassion is severely damaged.

So in addition to having two legs that barely work, I now have a crippled heart. Tomorrow morning I will undergo a procedure to repair my heart. If all goes as planned, I may awake to find that I love children and pets and no longer hate nearly everyone I meet. But I'm not counting on that.
