The sky was the limit for 71-year-old Bruce Feinberg, who was determined to go on a two-hour flight just three months after major open-heart surgery.

Feinberg’s twin grandsons were celebrating their second birthday in Florida, and he wouldn’t miss it for the world. But just days after the surgery, Feinberg became extremely weak and had trouble moving.

He spent eight days in the intensive care unit at a local hospital before being transferred to Adventist HealthCare Physical Health & Rehabilitation’s Takoma Park facility, where he spent 15 days.

Feinberg was eager to return home and, more important, to make the trip to Florida for the birthday. Once he arrived home, however, Feinberg’s wife realized she needed extra help in caring for her husband. She reached out to Adventist HealthCare Home Care, which quickly sent a nurse, an occupational therapist and a physical therapist to the couple’s home.
