I found a heart shaped rice in my valversary dinner! :)
Me and my hubby out celebrating my 3rd valversary, giving a toast to life!
My anniversary hike- I made my goal!
Out to dinner with my hubby for my one year anniversary!
Hi guys, I am 9 months post op, double valve replacement. Here I am today 9 months later on a snorkeling adventure in Belize! It was a bumpy recovery but I am so grateful to be physically able to do this trip!
I'm working on embracing my new scar and being proud of it. It took me a long time to adjust to my first OHS scar, and this scar is much bigger! I am on vacation with my hubby and decided to go for the v-neck dress and show it off.
My first real hike 3 months post op. The picture doesn't capture how steep the incline is. My mechanical valves were definitely working hard, and I took breaks along the way but I made it to the top!
This is my 5 1/2 week scar. My hair is wet because I can't quite style it yet. Lol. But scar is healing nicely.
My one month follow up with my surgeon- Dr Barnhart at Swedish. He is the best!
Just 2 weeks post op and I made it out to lunch with my family! Never thought I'd be up to it this quick.
