Bouncing back from open heart surgery

Surgery done on Oct. 1st. I had a little choice in the date. I picked the first because it was my father’s birthday.

The biggest ache is from my healing sternum. They cut it open. It will take six to eight weeks to heal. Because of it, I have to avoid front seat airbags. Trouble is I am six feet two inches tall with size twelve feet. Getting into the back seat is an acrobatic exercise. This strains my upper chest. On Friday I did two car trips, one to my family doctor and one to dialysis. Last night very sore.

No trouble sleeping. I wish my concentration was a little better.

I am hopeful.
