Someone who’s been through the Cardiac Wars, with open heart surgery and rehab, expresses gratitude

20 Jul
Someone who’s been through the Cardiac Wars, with open heart surgery and rehab, expresses gratitude for the guided imagery that was in his ears the entire time he was in the O.R. and the C.I.C.U..
Just wanted to tell you that I had major heart surgery last March (with several life-threatening complications) and your tapes were extremely helpful. My surgeon, Dr. Mehmet Oz, recommended your tapes. I had "Successful Surgery" on as I entered the O.R. When I arrived at C.I.C.U., my sister changed the tape to "Cardiac ICU/Rehab" and I left that one on for the next four days while I was on the respirator. I never once tried to pull any tubes out which was quite surprising to the medical staff. In addition to the meds I was on, I attribute my calmness and positive outlook to your tapes. Thank you!
