Yesterday, I went for my 3 month follow-up after surgery. My cardiologist Dr Westcott wiped the last prescription off my shelf.  One baby aspirin a day is all I have to take from now on!

My recovery is going well.  I don’t always wear my pedometer.  My steps/day is regularly over 1,000.  I hit the 10,000 threshold on Yoga Walks with Greg in Fort Ward, walking forwards and backwards on the hills.

A particularly helpful yoga pose that became central to my recovery we called the Shoulder Heart Opener.  One month after my surgery, I was doing this pose, putting my healing sternum under gentle tension.  Alignment and correct posture are essential for the benefit of the practice.
