Jon’s Happy Heart

I just got home from the hospital.  Jon’s catheterization went very well.  The surgeon was able to open the artery and put a stent in it.

As much as I loved Jon’s old heart, because it works so much better,  I love his new one even more.

The surgery took about two hours and during that time I sat in the waiting room and made the drawing above.  I started it by copying a drawing of a cross-section of a heart that was hanging on the waiting room wall.  I was trying to put as much positive energy into my happy heart drawing as possible.

Jon just called and said he was going to try to sleep.  I’m going to do the same.

  12. Maria, your blog spreads wide and far. Before going to sleep last night, after thinking of Jon all day, I received an email from SusanM. from California worried that you had not posted. And then this morning, a sigh of relief, she’d found your posting and could go to bed in peace. Well, as much as her Australian Shepherd allows. He’s a vigilant wild animal processor.
