Make Mine a Double

Journaling: On September 21, our world was turned upside down when Jim learned he had to have open heart, bypass surgery. A few days after he completed the paperwork he met with his surgeon who explained the procedure to us. Unfortunately, Jim wasn’t a candidate for the less invasive surgery; he was facing the prospect of having his chest cracked open, his heart stopped and its function taken over by a machine while the doctor made the necessary repairs – a frightening thought. But surgery had to wait until Jim was off certain medications for a week and his upper respiratory infection was healed – time to think about the surgery and all the things that could go wrong. On October 6 Jim had the double by-pass surgery and came thru with flying colors. The surgery didn’t last as long as anticipated and the surgeon was very pleased with the outcome and Jim’s prospects. That first night was pretty horrible, but he started improving a little every day. They had him up and walking the very next day, which just amazes me, and transferred him to a Rehab facility just four days later. Today, only nine days after his surgery, he’s doing quite well.

I'm glad everything is going well with Jim. This is such a clever title for the layout, and I thought I might need GLASSES when I looked at that font!!! Perfect for the title. LOVE the monitor readings in the one heart shape.
