It was the youngest Grandchild's 5th birthday and he wanted to go bowling,it was a very good day! We met with another heart surgeon yesterday and he thinks Jim may be able to have the new tavr procedure done to replace his heart valve, a few more test and we will know for sure!

The last few days my emotions have been all over the place, but I have decided that I am not going to spend the rest of our life together being sad. Whatever time we have, and it may very well be a long time, none of us know when we will leave this world, I am going to enjoy every minute. We went out for coffee and a sandwich last night and ran into friends we had not seen in awhile. This weekend we will have the 2 youngest grandchildren, the weather is suppose to be in the 80's Saturday so we are going to take them along the coast for a day trip and play in the white beach sand some and enjoy all the "simple pleasures" that we can.

Thank you all so much for the encouraging words. Jim is not a candidate for the TAVR procedure, his breathing was at 40% and to meet the federal guide lines it has to be at 35% so open heart surgery is the only choice and his pulmonary Dr. thinks the recovery would be too much for his lungs. They say he can have 6 months to 2 years without replacing the aortic valve. This is certainly not what we wanted to hear but I know God is able to do what the Drs. cannot. Please continue to pray for us as we go through this journey

Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes for us. After meeting with the Drs. it looks like Jim may not be a candidate for the TAVR procedure ( He is not "frail" enough) He will take a breathing test Friday and then we will know for sure. I can feel the prayers,I have a calmness and peace that everything will be alright regardless of what they are able to do and that is not normal for me! It is cold here today 47 degrees with only a high of 59 but the sun is shinning and the birds are singing, its a beautiful day!
