This was not suppose to happen !

Surgery did not go well last week, actually it was 10 days ago today that he went in for the new TAVR procedure to replace his aortic valve, he was suppose to be out of surgery in 2 hours and home in 5 days. The new procedure did not work and they had to do open heart surgery, he was in surgery 9 hours and today is the 10th day in ICU I have spent every night in there with him just coming home every day or every other day to shower and change clothes. Thanks for all the prayers, I firmly believe that is the only reason he is still here. Drs. say recovery will be slow and difficult so please continue to pray for a speedy and complete recovery.


  1. You guys definitely are in our prayers. Dr.s & Hospitals are important, but they wear the family out. We all wish the simpler procedure would have worked, but we take it as it comes.
    Praying for your strength to hold as you live as best you can under the circumstances.
    ((HUGS)) and good thoughts your way.

  2. I will continue to pray for you both.

  3. I'm always saying a prayer for you two, I hope Jim heals fast and I hope he does not have a lot of pain. Hang in there, he'll be alright. Hugs, Pearl

  4. Hang in there, he is still here and fighting. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hugs to you,

  5. Thinking of you daily friend....and still believing and praying!!!!
