I can't believe it has been a year since I got my new aortic valve and aneurism repaired. Man time sure flies. Thanks to the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Roselli, and all the staff. For those of you waiting I can honestly tell you the waiting is the worst part. After the first week it is an incredible journey to full recovery. My wife took care of me the whole time and within 12 weeks I was completely healed. Thanks also to Adam and all of you guys and girls for all your insight. Life is short so play hard and enjoy all your journeys. Be safe, be well, and talk soon.
Now this is it. Larry Studmuffin Manshel is on the left and I am still in my pajamas on the right. Larry got discharged a day ahead of me but he still called to check on me. Our wives also found support from each other which was very comforting. Larry and

I left CC today to go back to the hotel until Saturday. I had a few incidents that made my recovery longer. I am telling you Dr. Roselli, his great anesthesiologist and the rest of the great team were super terrific. I could not see my wife the whole week and I missed her terribly. To all the NP's, Nurses, and all the other staff I thank you from the top of my heart. Larry and I stayed in touch throughout the ordeal along with our wives.It was good to talk to someone we even took another picture together. I never want to do that again and I truly feel sorry for the upcoming surgery board members because of the no visitor policy. It really made for a rotten experience. The CC members did their best to help out and I am happy for that. The journey has ended and I am now in deep in recovery. If anyone needs a push for the CC talk to me, it was impressive and worth it. I can't wait to visit in 3 months and hand out a cookie package to the staff units that took great care of me.

Monday we meet with everyone and Tuesday the 24th is it. Thanks Adam for this site and thank all of you for your postings. Reading thru all of them is very calming. Some are actually funny, no offense Herb. Thank God the medical field is so full of great people and the advances keep making life easier. I will stay in touch as my wife and I weave through or journey. Ooh Rah
