Today, My Thoughts Are With Sarah & Steve
I just spent some time at Heart Valve Journals, our social network for patients and caregivers going through heart valve surgery.
As Sarah wrote in her journal this morning, “Shortly I’ll leave for the hospital. Thanks for so many for the encouraging words on the blog and in cards, on the phone and in person.”
Last night, Steve wrote in his journal, “The day is at an end. Off I go to bed. Hopefully, a few hours rest. Then, off to the hospital at 5:00 am. Family and friends will be there to encourage me. Wow, that’s love, getting up at 4:30am to go and wish someone well in surgery.”
If you would like to learn more about Steve and Sarah as they proceed through their surgery and recovery, please visit their journals by clicking these links:
- Sarah is having mitral valve surgery for mitral valve prolapse.
- Steve is having aortic valve replacement surgery for aortic stenosis.
Keep on tickin’ Sarah & Steve!
My thoughts are with you!
