If you've wondered where I've been & what I've been up to... well I've been taking care of my sweet husband since his open heart surgery last Thursday. He had an aortic valve replacement & aortic root replacement (to repair a 2" aneurysm in his heart). He had an amazing surgical team & the nursing staff has been so kind, helpful & ON TOP of everything. We are both tired but, sooooooooooooo very glad this is behind us & we are on the mend. The emails, phone calls & support from so many of you before, during & after the surgery has been so much appreciated. Some of you have walked this path for your own health issues, others have shared stories of helping a spouse or parent through this. It is not a walk any of us want to take but, we are so thankful that the technology is there & continues to improve for this & so many other procedures. It was scary to think of them stopping his heart, putting him on heart/lung machine & then taking his heart out to work on it. But, then I reminded myself they can do heart surgery inutero so knew this was BIG but, not something that couldn't be handled. NOW we heal. And then he will be better than before. So, to each of you THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! For all the prayers THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For all the support THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For all the friendships... know you are valued. So, in sickness & in health I DO! HUGS!
