This is my incredible heart surgeon and his equally incredible nurse practitioner! I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for them. Words can’t express how grateful I am for them and we’ve become like family. They’ve really touched my heart- literally and figuratively haha! They truly care and would even call the ICU nurses at night just to check on me. One day he came to see me in the hospital on his day off. Thank you God for giving me such compassionate, skilled, and dedicated doctors. I will possibly need more heart surgeries in the future (nothing soon we hope), and I wouldn’t want anyone but him doing them. I am forever grateful
So I saw my heart surgeon yesterday and also got to see some of the nurses who have taken care of me! I had blood drawn so I got to see the ladies who work in the lab. I've gotten to know them really well too! I also saw a lot of other people who work at the hospital that I've become close to. Every time I go to the hospital it's like social hour because I know everyone! It makes it more fun to go! I even had small thank you gifts for my surgeon and nurses! I will never be able to thank them enough!
My first official outing besides going to Dr’s appointments was to see Ralph and Gladys yesterday! We go to church with them and my family has known them for so long. Gladys always sends me the sweetest cards, so I’m so glad my mom and I got to visit them! I’m so grateful for their encouragement and example they set for how to live for Christ. They are a joy to be with!
My parents and I even went out to dinner Wednesday night too so it was a big day for me!
The night on Wednesday ended with a quick trip to the Heart Hospital ER, but I’m okay, just needing to figure out how to control some heart episodes I’m having. Nothing major to worry about. Pacemaker is working well, valve is working well, and my heart is okay! It’s always nice to hear that.
Thank you for your constant prayers and encouragement! It means more than I can say
