Cheers To The Caregivers!!!
By Adam Pick on August 8, 2007
Ever since I launched this site and published my book, I have received many, many, many emails from the caregivers of patients needing or recovering from heart valve surgery – both heart valve replacement and heart valve repair.
Needless to say, these emails are beyond touching and heartwarming (pun intended). 🙂
It is soooooooo wonderful to read about the love and support that family and friends have for those needing help. I’m trying to post a lot of these stories on this blog, but it is really hard to keep up. The stories of Ted Eisenmann and Michelle Browning exemplify what I’m talking about.
For this reason, I wanted to take a quick, electronic moment to acknowledge all of the caregivers that are helping their loved ones through this trying time. If that means you… Thank you for all you do! Thank you for doing research on heart valve surgery! Thank you for easing the mind of your loved one. Thank you visiting this site!
You are making a tremendous difference in the life of the person you care for!!!
That said, “Cheers To You!!!!”
FYI, this is a picture of Robyn and I on our honeymoon in Fiji last month. I must say, Robyn is not only my wife, she is my inspiration. During my recovery from double heart valve replacement surgery, I suffered a number of setbacks. Each time, Robyn was there to support me, to encourage me and, most importantly, to listen to me. I am so thankful we were setup on a blind date three years ago.
Keep on tickin!
