On temporary hiatus I hope

Tomorrow morning is when I have Heart valve surgery. I've heard of people coming home in five days, but my doctor outlined 10-12. At least one of which will be in ICU. One of the ICU nurses, a Filipina named Zarah, is a good friend of my wife Leonita. Zarah has been kind to tell me a lot of what lies ahead for me.

Right now I'm very scared of the open heart surgery operation I'm having. I won't be back to blogging before September. If I'm up to it, or rather can talk Leonita into doing it for me, I'll have a post on how I'm doing in a week or two.

The photo of me and Leonita is 10 years old. My wife remains as beautiful as ever.

Till next time.....

Update- Inserted photo into the post.

God bless you, Bill. I had valve replacement surgery 8 years ago, and while they were in there, they did a double bypass. I was home in 5 days, but your case may be different. Figure on at least 6 weeks recovery time.

The day is coming when we're going to be able to do this type of surgery arthroscopically, but we're not quite there, yet.

My prayers are with you, Bill.

Good Luck.

It's amazing how well modern medicine does in limiting your hospital stay (a dangerous time.) When I had my major heart attack and heart surgery back in 2001 I had the attack on a Monday, the (non-open heart) surgery mid-week and was back home (and feeling terrible! (grin) ) that Friday.

You may be surprised how quickly and smoothly it all works.

dr lava:

Good thing your getting this done BEFORE the Democrat sweep in November.

Thanks for your posts, they always stand out as a breath of clean fresh air and positive humor amongst the depressive, negative, cynical, regressive, and misinformed tone of Wizbang.

I sincerely wish you well.

Take your time getting back. No need to rush things and have a major set back. My prayers and best wishes for a speedy recovery are on the way too.

You're in the best place in the world with the best doctors in the world, you're gonna be fine. That, and everyone I pray for suffers NO unexpected difficulties.

My horse has never come in and I lose every game of chance ever devised, so He must've compensated with the prayer thing. God bless and see you real soon.

I would be frightened, too--far too frightened to write about it, I'm sure--but know that you have the prayers and well wishes of a lot of people out here.

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence."

Hope to see you back soon (maybe even ahead of schedule if things go really well).
