I 1/27/09 due to an aneurysm resulting in an aortic dissection. Way too long on a heart lung machine (12hrs) equated to a dead right leg. First surgery was BK, second was AK. 32 days in the hospital
My attitude is great and I'm happy to be alive and enjoy my family and friends. Sunday I was skiing and Monday I was on a helicopter to the OR. You just never know when something tragic happens, it's just how we come out of it that counts. Attitude is everything. Choose your attitude.
Glad to be here!
