Just a quick note to say hi!
I had 3 open heart surgeries in 13 days in august 08; then a sternumectomy and major
chest debridement.  rib cage mechanics have my chest bones moving constantly. Coughs force my thorax up thru the sternum vacated space.  Hiccups cause violent chest reaction, rapid heaving.  I went off morphine two years ago and rely on marijuana brownies, smoothies, etc.  It never gets better.  But you learn how to deal with the various movements of your new chest.

You are in my thoughts and prayers as is your brother. I hope that today has dawned a little brighter for you and your family.

I just noticed the joy you take in your grandson and I can relate to that as we have two granddaughters who we are going to have overnight tonight ....holiday here Monday (family day)

By the way the cliking and poping either gets less with time OR I just don't notice it as much 1.5 yrs later ...I do notice a lot of pain with the muscle flap protection with changes in the air pressure

again our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours

As I stated in my post of Feb 11 there is a constant ache that makes me well aware of my situation... clicking ? yes sometimes but it is the movement of my ribs and collar bone into my throat when reclining that is more bothersome....hoping and praying that your brother gets his transplant soon .... my email (private) is ***@**** ...the one I am registered with is ***@****

I really hope that your brother gets well soon ....I know what it is like to live with heart disease as I had my first attack at the age of 41 and then no problems until age 54 in 2007 ....keep me posted on how things are going
