All is well with the DH, who had a lengthy surgery yesterday.  The repair of his heart valve was successful, and there weren't any complications.  He was resting fairly comfortably in ICU when I left him last night; he should be transferred to a regular room today, and may be able to come home by the weekend.  It was a long day of waiting for me, but the hospital staff was great -- they kept me updated during the surgery, and got me in to see him as soon as they could.

God is good!

I had an adventure last fall with my hubby who unexpectedly had a heart attack.  It was an anxious couple of days, but we were there and back again in no time.  He's been very healthy since then, except for one thing that surfaced recently during a check up with his heart doctor.  It seems he has a leaky valve in his heart which is quite pronounced, and actually does give him some shortness of breath at times.  We're not sure if it's connected to his heart attack last fall or if it's something he had before and it was made worse by the attack.  In any case, it's something the doctors want to deal with it now by repairing it so it won't wear his heart out later.

So DH is going in for open heart surgery tomorrow morning -- surgery is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and could be 4 to 6 hours in length.  "Open heart surgery" sounds pretty scary, but from what I understand, the problem they need to fix is actually fairly straightforward.  So all of your prayers and good thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

Hopefully I'll be there and back again fairly quickly, with a healthy hubby in tow!
