Well thanks for all of your concerns. now I may be able to help out someone just as ourselves. A little update, I came home last night around 6pm, didn't know that the van we have can sway back and forth so much. All and all It came out just fine. I do understand the pillow thing now! Ha Ha A little emotional don't quite understand that, you know guy thing, feel real priviliged to have had this done to me, so I can have a better life. The doc I guess claimed the valve was worse than he thought. Didn't supprise me much the way I felt, glad I didn't wait until I wanted to then. When they took me out of surgery they asked me were I was and what day it was. The only thought came to mind was Disneyland. I finally had to appoligize and tell her, it was quite a ride. Try to catch up on others like Andy? Thanks for prayers! Jeff H.
