How to get better after heart surgery
More than a decade ago, I was diagnosed with an early-stage heart condition.
I had surgery to remove my heart valves.
It was an operation that would likely have been deadly had it not worked.
But when I woke up after the surgery, I wasn’t in the hospital.
It wasn’t until I was at home in my own home that I started to realize how much my life had changed.
I realized that I had the potential to be a fighter.
The surgery was a big setback for me.
But it also taught me that I am a fighter for others.
When I was first diagnosed, I never imagined that I would be a person of faith and faith-based work.
My faith in God helped me make the difficult decision to get the surgery done.
The story I’m telling is not about me, but about the stories of people who have similar experiences.
As you grow up, you need to embrace faith in order to live the life you want to live.
As I continue to do research, I hope that by reading the stories I’m sharing here, you will understand that this is not the story of a one-time trauma, but a story of life-changing and life-defining changes that occur in the life of a person.
In this article, I’ll share with you the story behind the surgery I had as part of my recovery from the surgery that led to my heart disease.
I want to thank Dr. Mark W. Johnson for his help in gathering these stories.
I’ve also chosen to share some of the positive outcomes of the surgery with you.
When you’re going through surgery, your body is constantly changing.
Some days it feels good, some days it doesn’t feel good, and sometimes it’s really painful.
I am thankful to have the support of my doctors, who I trust fully to guide me through this journey of recovery.
I can’t thank them enough for the way they’ve helped me through.
I also want to acknowledge Dr. Paul W. Ehrhardt, a heart surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic.
He is my medical mentor and has been an invaluable source of support during my treatment.
And of course, my wife, Laura, has been my role model and my role partner throughout my journey.
As a result, I want you to know that I love you both and am so thankful for all you’ve done for me throughout this difficult journey.
I’m also grateful to my parents for believing in me, for giving me the confidence to go forward and for letting me go through this difficult time in my life.
It’s been a difficult journey, but it’s been worth it. Thank you.
