Quick Update

I'm typing this from an ICU waiting room, so I'll be brief. John's heart surgery yesterday, although a bit difficult, was successful, and he's now the proud owner of a mechanical mitral valve. :) Many thanks for all the prayers, good wishes and positive energy - I'm happy to say they were answered, and he'll soon be on the road to recovery.

I'll be spending most of the next week at the hospital, but will be available via phone for those of you have my cell, and will be checking email once or twice a day as well.

Feeling very tired this morning, but incredibly thankful for this miracle of modern medicine, for his doctors and caregivers, and for friends and family who've been there with support and encouragement - thank you all!

Back soon...

What wonderful news about your husband! My father in law had a valve replaced last year and is doing great! I hope John has an easy and speedy recovery.:)

Hey Carolee,
So nice to hear good news. Our prayers and thoughts will stay with you till you have him back home. Please remember to take care of yourself. At times like these we often forget the caregiver needs care. Blessings and healing though to you both.
