Heart Stints 2

On Monday November 15, 2004 I entered the hospital for the second of two stints for my heart in the last three weeks. I had two stints about 12 days after my open heart surgery in January 1999. The doctor told me after the procedure that he had done a great job. I have light duty for about a week and then gradually move back toward a full schedule. I am thankful that the procedure went well. Thanks for all of you who prayed for me.

Below I have put two pictures of the inside of my heart that the doctor took. One before the stint (the first one) has an arrow pointing to the 90% blockage and one after the stint (the second one). I was awake for the whole procedure. The “ties” on the left are from my open heart surgery in January 1999. They tied my rib cage back together. The doctor who put in the stints told me which doctor had done the heart surgery by apparently looking at the way he tied off my rib cage. He left his autograph inside my chest.

I am truely bionic.
