the shock will wear off

steve, i know that shock of being told so calmly that you need open heart surgery. i was 27 years old when i was told that. although i had a hole in my heart the size of a half dollar i still remember that all i could remember hearing was the doctor telling me this so calmly. i was so fortunate to have very skilled and Christian doctors and i came though with flying colors and all to find out later that i was also about six weeks pregnant at the time. she is my miracle child. any way im sure you will feel much better afterwards. i will pray for your doctors hands to be skilled and experienced. it will have positive effects on things that you probably would never associate with being a heart problem or circulation problem. God is good and will be with you. Keep the faith and be strong. always, barbara
