    Think of your next trip to the woods. The sun will be bright and warm and the trees coming into leaf, and you will wonder why you were even slightly worried..:dblthumb:

    God Bless you n yours and see you through it.

    My Brother has a mechanical heart valve. Said nothing hurt as bad as having it put in ever, so ya have my hope for strength, grit, luck and Gods blessings.

    It is something lots of folk get through, so focus on reasons to get through it.

    Then trust God has ya in His palm.

    Prayers up my friend. A speedy rehabilitation and low pain and/or good meds.
    And I have to disagree with this...
    Full flat grind. Ask if you can keep a piece of the sternum and @NevadaBlue can DIY it into something.
    Some may think this sounds morbid but I would absolutely make something out of myself. Let me clarify, a part I wasnt using anymore. As a matter of fact didn't someone have a knife handle made from his bone after a motorcycle accident and surgery?

    My mother-in-law died shortly after having BOTH knees replaced with titanium. I tried to get the parts after the cremation... but my request was denied. :oops:
