Thursday, May 31st, marked the one year anniversary of my open heart surgery at the Mayo clinic
. That morning, one year ago, I was being cut open; that evening, one year ago, I was blogging from the ICU
. Now here I am, one year later, fully recovered, far away from the danger of dying from this defect, and actually in much better health primarily because my heart is now operating more efficiently since my aortic valve is back to a normal shape.
Thanks again to all my friends and loved ones who supported me during my recovery. The physical recovery was hard but the emotional and spiritual recovery was harder yet. Happily, that is all behind me now. Life is short, and I have many more moments to enjoy before this part of my journey draws to a close.
Quote of the day:She said that she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short.
