I had open heart surgery 2 months ago yesterday. Somehow the Lord saw fit to get me through it. I am 63 years old, and had a complete mitral valve replacement. Very scary, for sure.
I could have used a warm hand one night in ICU, but got a nasty grump.
So, this is from me to you.
I am holding your hand, praying with you, and smoothing your hair back from your forehead.
Don't be afraid. Your faith is strong, and you will be fine.
You are never alone.
I know what you mean about not getting much in the way of support from friends and family, because it's been that way for me. My husband is an absolute Angel, perhaps my greatest blessing along with my Mom and son and daughter. All the rest of my support has been from e-mail friends.
Do not fear, you will feel so much better after this is over with.
