FinkyDinks recovery

24 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

 

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for sending you thoughts and prayers and best wishes for a sucessful surgery and a speady recovery. I do believe with all my heart that this helped my Finky through this procedure.

 

On March 20, 2013, FinkyDinks went in for a (sucessful) mitral valve repair via port access. This means they were able to repair the mitral valve of his heart without cracking open hes chest. There were a couple of hiccups during his procecure and he ended up spending a couple extra days in CV ICU and was expected to be discharged on March 29th, 2013. He started showing signs that he was recovering faster, and now is scheduled to be released on March 25th, 2013.

 

He still has a long road ahead of him to a full recovery, but we are sure he will be sucessful. I expect he will probably be back on the computer shooting at anyone that crosses his path within a couple of weeks. Hopefully, within a few months he will be able to rebuild my computer so that i can be the easy target for all of you to take aim at.

 

Again, thanks to all of you, and happy shooting!

Outstanding! So glad to hear that he's on the mend.

 

My son was born with a heart defect and had his chest cracked twice before his 6th birthday. He's 18 now and is facing a pulmonary valve replacement via the port sometime in the next couple of years (the one they put in 12 years ago is wearing out.

 

I feel what you're going through but the port procedure is such a faster recovery than open heart - because us oldies don't bounce back as fast as those perky young fellas do :)

 

Hope he continues down the road to fast recovery and we see you both on TS again soon.

 

Warmest regards

Steve
