Ann was her husband Dennis’s primary caregiver and support system during his heart valve replacement experience. Ann’s healthcare background helped him through surgery, cardiac rehab and recovery.
nathpt,Thank you Ann Dobkowski for your support.
I appreciate your willingness to serve as an Ambassador. I wrote to your spouse since I am to have simlar surgery after the first of the year. Unfortunately, I am also caretaker to my husband of 45 years who had a stroke in 2006 at age 54. He has fairly good functioning, considering is deficits-right side affected-needs walker, right hand is useless, but the biggest problem is his limited speech. I just thought it would be helpful to encourage each other. I hope to hear from you.
