Brief Update

Thursday, July 19, 2018

I have very little energy yet but I can tell you that the
open heart surgery was a valve repair, lasted 4 hours
and went well. I stayed in the hospital for 6 days, returning
home on July 8th, feeling pretty good.
I came home on several meds, one of which was warfarin
and Ibuprofen for pain. I developed an Upper GI bleed and
by Friday, the 13th, I went to the local ER and was airlifted
to another hospital and stayed until Monday. I was given 8
units of blood and remember very little until the last day.
I can no longer take warfarin or ibuprofen and this has added
another 2 weeks to recovery.
I had a scope done for ulcers and go back in 2 months
for a follow up, This was definitely not on my bucket list.
I will check again but for now, short periods of activity wear
me out.
Hope everyone is enjoying summer. HUGS!
