Thanks to everyone for the prayers through this operation. Because of your prayer and the grace of God, things are going good. I started driving the other day and walk one mile some days, and half a mile other. Monday I start cardiac rehab. I cannot go back to work until April. The main pain left is the chest bone, which will take a while. This being the first operation, it was a shock to get a good dose of mortality. It is also hard to deal with being unable to do things as usual at certain times. I am not good at doing nothing. A special thanks to brother Tom for posting the original thread. Praise and thanks to the Lord for the success of the operation. It is good to be posting again.
