This blog post contains images and details that some readers might find disturbing.
This has been a hard post for me to write. Partly because I still have trouble sometimes connecting to the experience; to really recognizing that the story I’m about to tell happened to me. And partly because it has felt so big that I want to make sure I do it justice, for myself, and for anyone who connects to what I have to share. Today I want to walk through the story of my heart surgery, the complications, and my recovery.
