Wow,. I was sitting in my back yard the other day when I noticed several signs in the neighbor's yard across the street. I asked the wife to snoop out the signs, and she returned in saying the signs are for me. The neighbor's little girl made these various signs of getting better for me , and put them along road side where I walk . I simply cried. Wife took pictures of me by the signs , I'll post later. Stay safe and optimistic
Hello everyone. Well have a few days of post-op out not doing too bad considering the only thing that is dragging me down during the day is the beta blockers. The beta blockers make me tired all day where I don't feel like going for a walk and I just want to sleep. The wife and I both notice come around 6:00 at night after the beta blockers subside that my voice is more clearer my words are more pronounced and I feel like I can start doing things. So, therefore, who else is experiencing this weird drag from beta blockers? Cheers
Hello everyone. This is my first day home complete first day, and I'm not doing too bad it comes and goes my walks are good. Short and sweet lol. The question I have for anybody wants to answer is is the rise of your temperature can go from 98 point whatever to 1001 point something and then if you get up and walk around it goes back to 98. Your thoughts
Getting real nervous as time nears !!! Inspiris Valve and one bypass !! Surgeon wants to hold off from wrapping my 4.2cm ascending aorta, which would put me on the (wait and watch) !! I'm still arguing in doing something while I'm open !!
Hope everybody's doing fair today? I just received an update from the head nurse at the hospital. I'm told instead of doing a double bypass on my heart that there's only going to be the single bypass on the LAD. Also, there won't be any work to my ascending Aorta that's at 4.2 cm. However, just like an auto mechanic, they won't be for certain until they get me into the garage LOL. I'm banking on my new valve and the one bypass on the widowmaker. I'll be in touch stay safe everybody enjoy their new life's journey.
Hello everyone. I hope everybody's doing well today? I'm asking a question that when replacing the aortic valve with a dilating ascending aorta of a 4.2 CM +/- was left alone due to the fact that once they replace the valve then that should correct the growth of that artery. Thank you
The surgeon I was hoping for walked in the room !! I smiled and said yes out loud in greetng him ! Shook his hand , and the conversation was fun ! Wife was joyed in seeing me return to normal ! We looked at some pictures of my heart where he was like no problem ! 3 or so hours and your done ! He answered a bunch of questions ! ! Oh, wife laughed at me on the way home since first time I'd talk about something besides the OHS ! I'm looking forward to my new journey paid for by the US Government !!
Hi everyone. I hope everybody's doing well today? I just had my catheterization. It looks like I have a couple block arteries besides getting my bicuspid valve replaced., I'm a little sad, however, it is what it is in life. So, it looks like a One stop shop In fixing everything. Let's all stay optimistic with our hearts, for those hundreds of thousands of people that have no idea they might have the heart problem. Thanks for the support support. Marshall
