Celebrating my three year anniversary! Beats the ICU from three years ago for sure!
Can't believe it's been that long.
Life is good!
My one year valversary!! What an amazing year. It was not without some bumps but I did some really awesome stuff this year. Was suppose to have some neat skydiving pics today but the weather didn't cooperate.
Thanks to all of you here!
Last year I put off surgery to dance with my daughter at the recital. Couldn't help but thinking that it might be the last time.
This is from recital today one year later I am better than ever. Blessed to be here. Many more to come.
What a beautiful day here in Tennessee. Looking forward to days like this is why we go through this. Cheers to all of you valvers, your all bad asses in my book.
So after the scare Edwards Lifesciences gave me with that call last week, here is what they sent me.
My wife got this ornament for me. Really choked me up.
This is Rufus, he was a valued member of my support team. As a source of comfort coming home from the hospital and a companion on the many walks during recovery. He passed away this weekend. Gonna miss this guy.
Aftermath of the Black light run.
This is us after completing the Warrior Dash. 3.7 miles of hills, obstacles and mud.
This is my daughter and I. I had AVR on 6/18 she has inherited my Bicuspid valve. We decided to run the Warrior Dash together. This is us at the starting line.
This is Rufus my running buddy. We put in a post op record 3.5 miles today. When I told him he was proud of himself.
No more tests, no more hospitals, no more doctors for a year. Decided to take my wife to the beach to put it all behind us.
My daughter owns a Dance School and every year she does a big daddy daughter routine. I put my AVR surgery off so I could do this with her today. It was worth it. I'm ready now.
