24 year anniversary

Post by Sumorunner on Sun Jul 26, 2015 8:15 am

Valve Anniversary #24. St Jude's aortic valve replacement July 26, 1991 at age 43. I have lived and loved a great deal since then. We had been married 22 years, now It's coming up on 46. My 4 kids were between 6 & 16, now 30-40. We've seen them all finish college, 3 of them to doctorates and they've since added 5 grandchildren to the clan.

I was always active, a runner long before the valve replacement, and was able to return to it within weeks. I have continued to maintain about 1,000 miles per year and have run some 330 road races since, even placing in the top 3 in my age group a few times. The year I turned 65, 22 years post surgery, I ran a half marathon, swam a mile and did 500 pushups in 1 hour.

My wish for you is that you too can see a greater richness in your lives after having your heart problem fixed and I trust you will not squander the bonus time you have now been given.

Happy 24th Jack!!

I think you hold the record here for the most years since your surgery and you really have made each year count... Here's to many more years for a guy who has inspired us all since the very beginning of the VR, CA, and HEART forums.

Thanks, Jack. That wish has certainly been fulfilled in my case; I never foresaw the silver lining when I first got the diagnosis. Congratulations on 24 great years and thanks for all your encouragement and inspiration.
