one year ago today...

... I was under the knife.

Hard to believe it's been a year and at the same time it feels like an eternity ago remembering how awful i felt for 3 weeks after the surgery. I feel really good now. Still get light-headed every once in a while, don't think I remember things as well (i might just be getting old), and can't seem to get my legs back when I run, but other than that I feel like i'm in great shape and i think the valve is working well. Some people just get bad valves and have to have them replaced in the first year, which would have been awful.

That was a crazy time. Jason and Diana had just moved into our house (which was a great help, and now we own a house together), we started the pre-launch for Visio Dei the week I had surgery (which is a real testament to the strength of the leadership God's given our community), and I was blown away by people's generosity in helping us over the next 3 months (i don't think bobbi-jo had to cook anything for 3 months - we still have some of those meals from 'dream dinners').

I'm not sure why I posted this. Not trying to be dramatic, but I guess it feels like my birthday in some way. Anyways, thanks God for keeping me here and healthy and thanks to everyone for their support.

dang man.. a year. wow. don't want to get all emotional, but i'm glad stuff worked out the way it did. who knows without the surgery - maybe we would have never started down the road of owning a house together.

now that i think about it - you prolly would have rather had it the other way ;)

anyways - i love ya man and i'm glad stuff worked out the way it did - all things considered (said in a really manly voice)

ahem... football starts tomorrow!!!

Awww...yipppeee for healthy Jeff! I remember you telling me you were going to have to have heart surgery. I laughed because I KNEW you were kidding. Then you weren't kidding so I pulled off the side of the road to chat...right there in front of the foodline and Mexican bakery on Maynard...then my car almost got hit, so I went home.

Nice story huh? Much love Ramsey!
