4 bypass surgery

My situation developed so fast I did not have a choice in doctor but I am SO happy I got Dr, Munns. He was great! His team was great! The best way to tell my story is to say this... I had my chest cracked on Thursday morning and I was standing and walking a few steps on Friday morning. By Sunday Noon I was home and climbing the stairs to sleep in my own bed. Now a year later I am running, riding my bicycle and leaving a very active and productive life. I feel blessed to have been cared for by Dr. Munns!
