Just popping in to say sorry I haven’t updated in so unbelievably long! I’ve just moved to England (wow, that’s weird to just say) and I’ve been swamped figuring my life out at the moment. So, hey, if any of you are around Stratford-on-Avon, I’ll be going to the institute here and I sort of don’t know anyone in this country, so hit me up!
I promise I’ll get back to relatively regular updates once I’m settled again. I love you all and thanks, as always, for following!
Today my friend Josh goes in for his first sternotomy to get his ascending aorta and valve replaced. Let’s direct as much positive energy into his procedure as we can! Thanks for keeping him in your thoughts.
I finally did it! It’s my pre-op EKG, so the elongated bit after the S represents my original abnormality. I got it as a reminder of what I’ve survived and in memory of the murmur I don’t have since the fix.
It’s my Heartsurgiversary! Here are some incisiony cookies I made in honor of two whole years with a whole heart!
Not using the last moment before I went under to tell Dr. Campbell “You’ll be in my heart.”
Sorry I haven’t updated in a bit. Just wanted to pop by and let you know I’ve just had my annual EKG and echo and my new pulmonary valve, turning two in June, is still kicking ass! My LV is back to normal and I have virtually no regurgitation! Woo!
When people begin to cringe at your gory surgery stories, keep going and gesticulate wildly. They’re loving it.
IN WHICH MARY ATTEMPTS A GIVEAWAY!
[muffled cheering in the distance]
Hey lovely people! I am just so honored to have more than 100 of you tagging along for my poorly drawn lines and far-fetched puns that I thought it would be fun to give a thing!
Here’s how it works!
- Just fill out this form I made so I can contact you if you win.
- You must fill out the form, as that is what I will use to randomly select the winner.
- You can fill out the form once a day between now and April 30th at 11:59pm.
- Being as the idea is to celebrate those of you following the blog, that’s going to be a prerequisite for winning the giveaway.
- Also, no giveaway blogs.
The winner will receive their choice of witheart comic printed all snazzy-like on a mug! All your friends and coworkers will writhe in unabated jealousy at your cardiology themed beverage container (or maybe they’re writhing at the possibility that it is filled with blood). Either way, it’s a win/win/win/win/win! :D
100 FOLLOWERS?! Oh my goodness! Thank you all so much for following and liking and reblogging and whatnot! Should I do a thing for this? Do you guys want a giveaway maybe?
