I survived the surgery, which went very well, now just making one day at a time through the long recovery procedure. I want to thank the superb staff at Penn Presbyterian, who work well as team and individually to make the patient experience as positive as possible. As complicated as recovery is from heart surgery, they had an answer for every contingency.
In following posts, I will let you in on what happened but here is a little tease. How come my own sister didn't recognize me a couple hours after the surgery?
