So great to hear from you! It sounds like you are on your way to an amazing recovery. I hope my recovery is the same. I wish I had advice on the insomnia but unfortunately I don't at this time. Best wishes for a continued recovery! I can't wait to be on that side of things.
Tim, Sending good thoughts and prayers your way. Try and not worry, you will do great and be fine. Thankfully, we can be repaired/fixed unlike many other diseases. I had full sternotomy for mitral valve repair and am doing wonderful. Adam's book, this site and the FB page are all good tools. I look forward to your posts of recovery. Janis Kielbasa
I wish you well on your journey through open heart surgery. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. I can guarantee you that the surgery won't be nearly as bad as you are imagining, and the waiting is truly the worst part. The fact that you eat well and workout will make your recovery that much faster and easier, so take some comfort in that.
Godspeed and good luck!
