Bump in the road sounds like no problem as you are heading for full recovery.
Hope for full fast recovery.

Sorry about the grizzly photos.
Right after
Day two

I am being released today Thursday. After some rest I’ll get back to pens very, very carefully at first. My surgeon will get my best pen for sure.
Congratulations Mark, a lot of people don't survive the lead up to this. I had a CABG 17 years ago. Do the rehab and don't rush your recovery. Also, be sure to take the pillow with you in the car. An early sudden stop in the car is not pleasant. DNAHIKT!

The worst part for me was when they removed the chest tube. The surgeon yanked on it and ran for the door. He said he had been punched a couple of times by anger patients.

Good Health!

Mark, praying for a speedy recovery! I know you have to be missing that shop but as others have said - don't rush it!

Glad to hear and see your doing well, Mark. Here's to a speedy recovery. And by the way, you're now a member in good standing of the zipper club. To be a member you need to promise on those hot California days to walk around the shopping mall with your shirt unbuttoned to your naval. And you can't wear a T-shirt. Be proud of your zipper.

Hi Mark,

I was just up in your town this last Saturday for a belated Christmas with mom and dad. I wish you a speedy recovery. Good health to you and the family.
