To the Editor:

In a recent interview with Will E Sanders for American Heart Month in the Piqua Daily Call, there were some things I would have liked to have added to the article. For the record, I had triple bypass surgery on June 24, 2013. And I would also like to thank my family and friends for all their encouragement, all the nurses, staff and patients at Upper Valley Medical Center in the Cardio Rehab department for their caring and compassion during my recovery. It’s been a long road, but I’m getting better one day at a time. And thanks to Will for publishing my story. Don’t put off a visit to your doctor if you have any symptoms of heart disease. Listen to what your heart is telling you. I’m living another day because I did!
