My mother

My mother, Shirley Ochs, will be undergoing heart valve surgery on Monday. She is in her mid-70's, the same age as my aunt who had successful heart surgery last fall, and has a history of heart trouble, having had several angioplasties in the past 15 years, like my aunt-her sister-in-law.
She will have the surgery at Bronson in Kalamazoo, so I feel she will be in good hands.

Re: My mother

Thanks for the prayers!
Since the surgery is being done with a catheter instead of cutting her open and sawing her rib cage open like they had to do to my aunt last year, I'm sure her recovery will be quick.

Re: My mother

Well, I am at Bronson now. Her aortic valve replacement surgery went well and she is now in recovery.
If all goes well she could be released as early as Wednesday of this week.

Re: My mother

She'll spend the night in the ICU, as is standard procedure after a surgery like that. Tomorrow she should be moved into a regular room and hopefully be discharged Wednesday or Thursday.
Her doctor said things went really well during the surgery and so far everything looks good.

I'm back at home in Benton Harbor, but my brother just told me she has been up and walking around. This is a good sign.

Good to hear good outcomes Jeff. Will keep her, and you, in prayer.

Re: My mother

She still hasn't been moved out of the ICU, so I don't know if that is good or bad. I guess it's better than being taken out too early like they did my aunt a little over a year ago.
