Two years ago this morning my chest was split open at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Thanks to Dr. Beckman and his team I am recalling the experience with gratitude. Had my six month checkup last Friday and my cardiologist, Dr. Lambert, said, "I never tire of hearing your heart function. The valve is perfect."
Medical science is wonderful. Dedicated and skilled health professionals work to improve our lives and in many cases, mine included, extend lives. God is good and in his wisdom he has endowed people with the hands and determination to work to these ends.
I could let this day pass without remark, but I won't.
Thanks to all who dedicate their lives to making our lives better.
Thanks to God who gave us life and sustains it.
About this hour 01/22/16 I was waking up to the first of the next 11 nights in hospital
