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!

I haven't been on for a few days, so didn't see this until today. Hope everything went well, Lin. Anything to do with the heart is scary! Thinking good thoughts.
