Succesful Production Monday!

Two days post production and I have a newly repaired Mitral heart valve.  7 hours of surgery though as it was very large and floppy.  Minimally invasive which will make recovery a lot split sternum.  Very sore this morning, but walked a mile in the first 24 hours after surgery.  Another 1/2 mile this  morning caused me to break a sweat.   Unfortunately we weren't able to get a before photo of the mitral valve, but we were able to get an after shot of the  repaired valve.  Somtimes the best laid plans don't always work out, but since it was a robotic camera, the only way to get the before shot was to have the more invasive surgery, something I certainly didn't want.   Hope to go home on Saturday
