I had my surgery on July 16, 2014. I have been back to work since September 14. I continue to grow stronger each day! I have a special request. I am a minister in a residence for elder adults. One of the assisted living residents, let's call her Mrs. P, for privacy reasons, is preparing for an AVR in the next two or three days. Please hold her your good thoughts and prayers! Thanks and be well!
