Wordless Wednesday - After LVAD
















If you are squeamish, stop here!  If not, there's one more below.  (I didn't take this photo, he did, because he couldn't see what's been done to him)

Brave brave brave man, I'm glad that I scrolled down to see the last photo to see what he's going through, let's hope he gets well soon.

Best picture: the thumbs up one. Makes one know he's doing ok.

Good thing you could all fit in the room and rally around after the surgery. I know you are all relieved and now let the healing begin.

Sally said...

God bless your boy. I pray for him, and all of you, that everything will get better from here. Surrounded by loving family; it's a beautiful thing. Thank you, MsA.

I look at that last photo and I think, "isn't it amazing what we can do now?" A neat incision and two tubes to assist his heart.

Still keeping you and the rest of your family close to my own heart.

Momma girl - how are you doing? This is so hard.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

I continue to pray that he will be well and home soon. ((hugs))

That poor guy. I am so sorry for what you all are going through. I remember when my brother had to have a bypass, he was curious about his scar too.

That may be the most important family portrait you have ever taken, Ms. A, everyone together, everyone safe, everyone alive. After what you have been through and have yet to come, I loved the "thumbs UP!" and as weak as he is, he will grow stronger with so much loving support. You all take good care, ya heah? What a relief, he is still with us!

I take the fact that he took the last picture to see what was done to him as a good sign. We will keep all of you in our prayers.

I have been visiting your post and just not sure what to say. I'm so happy to see him with a thumbs up! I can only imagine what all of you have been going through, no warning, you just never know. I wish I could give you a hug! You all are still in my thoughts and prayers...

So. Cal. Gal said...

I'm sure he's glad that that's over. I hope he's on the mend and feeling back to normal SOON!

I bypassed the last pic because I can't look at pics like that. Hits too close to home, I guess. lol!
