Just me and my new buddy

One of the  best things you can do after open heart surgery is cough
and breath.  But, with a broken sternum coughing hurts.  It helps to have
a pillow to hold against your chest.

Update!  Hard to believe but there is a very good chance I'll be
heading home tomorrow.  If my coumadin levels come up I'll be ready to roll wheels to the house.

Then it's quite a few weeks of healing and therapy before I'm back in the rigs.  Thanks y'all for the post and comments.

Btw, it's me in my chair at the hospital pointing to where the valve in my chest is on my new pillow.

Love y'all.
Walt
