Sunday August 10, 2008 -- 3 years post-surgery
It has been three years now since Sam's heart surgery. It is mostly a distant memory these days except for the annual cardiology appointment and a few faint incision scars. We remind ourselves as the anniversary approaches of the blessing of Sam, the great people at Johns Hopkins and the wonder of open heart surgery. We've been watching the ABC special series called "Hopkins." One of Sam's surgeons was hilighted in episode 7 in the series. (Luca Vricella, MD.) Dr. Vricella assisted Dr. Cameron during the surgery. I just reread the August 2005 blog entries. It is truly amazing how far we've come in three years.
