5 weeks post op from my right side thoracotomy mitral valve repair. Started driving last week (I use hand controls) and riding my hand cycle slowly around the neighborhood. Pleural effusion is getting better. Still a bit more sore than I was expecting, but I have pretty much been transferring myself since day 3. My journey is my own….I have learned it’s not about comparing yourself to the recovery of others. I’m excited to celebrate my Birthday later this week with a strong heart!

This is me and my rockstar surgeon, Lucian Lozonschi….24 hours post surgery. Surgery was a bit more extensive than first recognized, but after 8 hours, still a right side thoracotomy repair. Due to my paralysis and not being able to move around like most patients I am still dealing with uncomfortable chest tubes, but I was able to stand with help yesterday and have been transferring without a lift. Just need to drive through some pain, get fluids drained out and get rid of chest tubes. Longer than I wanted to be in hospital. But they tell me I am doing well.Every day is a new day and yes, indeed Susan Lynn, those were the most glorious ice chips ever!! More to come, thanks to you all and thanks be to God!!
