I've been following your journal and so glad you are recovering well. Hope you continue to feel better each day. As I wait for my surgery on 9/8, I can't help to get nervous and anxious, but this site has helped me a lot. I was wondering if you are having any problems taking the coumedin and if so, what problems? I still haven't decided which way I want to go.
I am considering the Cleveland Clinic for my aortic valve replacement and when I saw thats where you went I had to write. Of course you know the anxiety I am going through at this time. I have had a murmur since 1977 but no doc had ever followed up on it. Recently I found out (after a trip to the er for afib) that I have a bad valve. Just had a cath last week and surgeon says it's critical, but not an emergency. I am interested in finding out more from you concerning the clinic. Was it your choice to stay an additional week at the guesthouse or was it for safety sake? I am hoping you have continued to do well and hope to hear from you soon. God Bless.
HEY GIRLFRIEND--I'M SO GLAD YOU ARE HOME NOW--WOW CAN NOT BELIEVE ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS--DON'T KNOW IF YOU WILLGET THIS MESSAGE BUT WAY TO GO GIRL---ARE YOU STILL AT THE ADDRESS AT EDGE WATER--LOL ITS GOOD TO BE HOME LOL JANET
So glad to hear you are doing so well after surgery! Got back from Ouray last week and am finally getting caught up on my e-mails. Have been praying and keeping you in my thoughts daily! Excited that you are able to come home tomorrow. You'll be glad to sleep in your own bed again! The gals said you were able to do some signing and that it didn't hurt to do it. That's awesome! I'm making them work hard in class so be glad you are on "vacation!" Miss seeing you and look forward to having you back soon!

I am so glad you have your surgery behind you and you are feeling better each and every day. It is so amazing to hear from all the HV patients on this site. It's so soothing to me as it calms my nerves. I have to have a aortic valve replacement and was reading thru your journal. I was wondering what type of valve you got at 55 yrs old as far as mechanical or tissue? Did you go to CC then?
I hope you continue to feel better and look forward to following your journal.
YEAH OUT OF THE HOSPITAL! U WILL PROBABLY HAVESOME WITHDRAWAL FROM all the attention. Not to worried u just need a change of mind and concentrate on coming home. I am going to try to drive tomorrow and meet the '64 gal for lunch. have fun on your outings lol MJ
I am so glad your doing so well and you can get out and about while you are staying in the guest house. That will make a world of difference for all of you. I will be leaving for a trip to Califorina for my 30th wedding Anniversary and will be out of touch till the 8/15/11. But my prayers for your complete healing will continue. Our God is so Awesome, I give him all the glory for your healing.
Love Ya Girl Friend!

Shirley, I am so happy to hear the good news that the surgery is over and you are in ICU. July 12, I was in that same ICU. CCF is an amazing place and the only place I would undergo any heart procedure. Mine was a 2nd open heart (first one in 1984) for VSD repair so I mine like yours was a little more complicated but I knew CCF could handle it.
I am home now and doing very well. I too am 68 yrs old - my huband and I are very active with our 10 grandchildren - 9 of them live within 10 miles. Keep you eye on the goal gal and you will be where I am in 2 weeks time. GOD bless you and you are in my prayers - been there done that know what prayer can do. Emilyrae Helfen.
Shirley, You are in my thoughts and prayers. We are praying you will have complete and quick recovery. Mo said to tell you after going through this also he is praying for you also.
