I'm getting a new aortic heart valve tomorrow. It will be a bovine derived valve that lasts from 12-16 years or more. The surgery should last for about 5-6 hours. I suggested to the anesthesiologist that I was uncomfortable being under anesthetics so long. He said that the alternative was a shot of single malt whiskey and biting on a piece of leather. Shocked Hmmmmm. It might be a better idea to use the anesthetics. Very Happy 
As soon as I am somewhat cogent, I will check in here.
Meantime, I won't say "behave yourselves" because it would be a waste of time. Twisted Evil So, have fun and play nicely while I am away.

Even though it is a common procedure, it still makes you nervous. The odds are greatly in your favor.

Don't break any teeth while biting into that leather. :rtup

I have talked to Rons wife a couple of times in the past 2 days. Rons is doing ok but has had some issues with the new valve. They have had trouble with him when he stands up keeping his blood pressure stable and he gets real faint. I just talked to her again tonight and he is better than he was a couple of days ago. He did have a little set back right after surgery with this new valve when they tried to get him up for a walk.  They still have him in intensensive care but the recovery is slower than antiscipated.  I will post more as I talk with his his wife.

That is not what I hoped to hear. 

Let him know we are thinking of him? I am sure we all are.

It has been a bit of a tough time, but I am recovering and likely will go home in a few days.
I received a new aortic valve on Monday and one coronary artery was bypassed in 6 hours of surgery. The sternum was wired together and I was in one piece after about 40 staples. However, all did not go well when I was taken to intensive care. My pulse and heart rate plummeted to zero, the heart stopped, and they resuscitated me with paddles and 20 chest compressions. Thankfully, that started my heart and I was put on a pace maker and tightly monitored for several days.

My first words on awakening and being asked if I was OK was: “I am here and I am awake, and that is a great start. I had no idea how poignant those words were.

My own heart took over pacing by Wednesday, for the most part and completely by Saturday. The heart swelling went down enough that I could be moved into intensive cardiac telemetry yesterday afternoon. Each day has been an improvement.
The health care staff has been fabulous! It is wonderful to be back!
Best Regards to All!
Ron

Sure was good to hear your voice last night to Ron. I see you have updated the site as to your condition and I for sure would like to come to see you next weekend. So this week I will get with you as to what time works for you. I will bring my guns in case you want to hit the range. Al

Ron

You'll rejuvenate quickly! Had a buddy in Alabama had five by-passes done 5 years back and he was back driving a tractor in six weeks and hoeing weeds out of his cotton!

Great news you're doing better!

Prayers HELP!! cheers :suhlute :tup2
