After Heart Surgery… John, His Robe & His Yellow Socks Inspire 4,700 Facebook Likes!
By Adam Pick on January 14, 2020
Thanks to John O’Neill, the new year could not have started any better for our community.
That’s right! John, who was diagnosed with severe aortic regurgitation, had successful aortic valve replacement last week. It’s interesting to note that John had a bicuspid aortic valve and was completely asymptomatic. It was also great to hear that John caught the disease as his left ventricle had already started to enlarge. Yikes!
After seeing John’s smiling post-op picture, I quickly posted it at the HVS Facebook page (login required).
In 30 seconds, John’s post had 40 Likes… Then 400 Likes… Then 1,200 Likes… Then 2,400 Likes.
As of right now, John has inspired over 4,700 Facebook Likes. Ahhhh-Mazing!!!
In addition, over 380 patients have left John encouraging and supportive comments. John has also received comments about his robe and his yellow socks which I think may be the new trend in compression stockings. We’ll have to wait to hear from John on that.
Thanks so much to John for sharing his journey with us!!! And, thanks to all of you for cheering John on!!!
