My Valentine's Day was probably the worst ever. My dear husband of 21 years had a massive heart attack, and we spent it in the hospital. He is okay now, and God willing, he will be home soon and on his way to recovery. However, this whole ordeal has put alot of things into perspective for me. I have sometimes questioned whether this surgery was the right thing for me due to some complications and missing food. Ron's heart attack made me realize again that the main reason I had this surgery was for health reasons! Had I kept going on the path I was on pre-surgery, I would have been a likely candidate for heart disease as well. Now, I no longer have diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or Gerd! Sure, that doesn't eliminate any possibility for having a heart attack, but it does make it less likely. My husband is only a few pounds overweight and is pretty active, but heart disease runs in his family. Now, my goal is to help him get back to good health by helping him adjust his diet and exercise routine. Due to having this surgery, I now have good health and the energy to help him too! So, basically, a bad thing happening helped to reaffirm my belief that this surgery was the right decision! I want to grow old with my husband and watch our kids grow up, and hopefully have grandchildren someday! Please keep my husband in your prayers, right now we could really use it. Thank you everyone!
