Hi Jean. Wonderful to see how well you are doing. Surgery is next Tuesday for me, hubby's birthday (just didn;t want to bake a cake this year I guess). Was wondering if you have any advice about the ride home from the hospital. I will be riding 4 1/2 hrs to get back home. Told hubby if he bounces me off one curb, there will be hell to pay when I am recovered. Thanks, Sharon
Hi Jean: Read your journal with great interest as I am scheduled for mitral valve surgery with Mr McCarthy on 4/30. So glad you are recovering with such great speed and it gives me an idea (hopefully) of how quickly I will be back "at it." I wish you continued good healing. God bless!
Hi Jean, I had my bi-cuspid aortic valve replaced last year on March 17 at Froedthert in Milwaukee. Like you, I've been followed by cardiologists since childhood. My surgery came sooner then I'd anticipated and my routine follow-up appointment turned into admission and surgery. It all went fine and I am very grateful to have it over with. I feel like I can embrace the next phase of life now( after valve replacement). I do feel better emotionally and physically then I have in years. I really enjoyed cardiac rehab! I say you deserve a few new spring outfits. Let's just hope some sunshine and warm weather comes our way ASAP! Julie S
Thank you for your prayers.
I need to start the blog, for some reason have put it off and just have been reading everyone else's. I have also added a pillow to my list of things to bring to the hospital, that is one thing I didn't think about.
Continue doing well and am will be looking forward to your updates.
Glad to hear that you are feeling better.
Keep getting stronger.
Coumadin is a bit to get used too. Jon doesn't eat veggies so when they told him not too he just laughed.
It is snowing up at our cabin in WI. !!!!!

You are doing soooo well!!! Can you believe that you had major surgery a little over a week ago? There's no reason to rush the healing process as much as you want to do so. Your body has undergone a lot in these last days; so you can expect to feel tired. This is the time to take life at a slower pace.
Hooray you are home - that is mooovelous!
Just keep doing everything that they tell you to do......and we'll keep praying. :)
p.s. I want to help in any way I can- will call this week....are you up for a visit?
So glad you told me about the guest book. You sound, as I mentioned, wonderful. As mentioned also, I am so proud of you and what a fantastic, courageous model you are for everyone who knows you. Will write again. Great to talk with you. Love, Mary
I am glad u are doing better. Here is my home my phone number if u like to talk my home number is 847-258-3348 my cell is 224-634-5707. Maybe when u are feeling better u can come and see our apartment and see Larissa and Alex. Take care!
I just read the good news after yesterdays' scare. Hopefully it was just the medication. Elsie seems to be doing her job when allowed. Don't push things too quickly because they usually catch up to you later.
We are still praying for you.
