After Ross Procedure, Melissa Is Ready To Leave The Hospital

Over the past week, I have been sharing with you the story of Melissa Causey. Melissa and I became friendly after her Uncle Ted sent Melissa a copy of my book.

If I remember right, that was about two months ago. Like me, Melissa needed aortic valve replacement surgery. And, like me, Melissa chose the Ross Procedure technique as her surgical option.

Throughout this process, Melissa has had an amazing attitude. Although I’m sure she had her moments of fear, uncertainty and doubt (like most heart valve surgery patients), her story is inspiring.

Melissa Causey With Family In Hospital After Ross Procedure

Last Tuesday, Melissa entered the hospital for her heart valve replacement operation. Dr. William Ryan of Cardiothoracic Surgery Associates of North Texas, a highly regarded Ross Surgeon specialist, was Melissa’s surgeon.

Guess what? Today, five days later, Melissa will be going home. Amazing!

Wooo- Hooooo!!!!

Keep on tickin!
