They've been cutting into Steven Taibbi since the day he was born, and they still haven't stopped. According to the doctors, Steven should have died years ago, and several times since. Born April 26, 1953, he was cyanotic—doctor-speak for what was commonly called blue baby. As if that wasn’t enough, he was also born with three birth defects, requiring three operations. There would be more operations to come—many more. Over time, he needed not one, but two heart transplants.
