It has now been nearly six weeks since I had open heart surgery and I'm feeling better every day. There were times right after the surgery where I didn't think I'd ever feel anywhere near normal again, but slowly I've gotten stronger and am getting my energy back. There are even moments where I almost forget I had the surgery, but other moments where something will hurt or I can't do something that are stark reminders that I did.

WFMZ-TV's Melanie Falcon continues recovery after open heart surgery.
