I had no idea that you also have valve problems. I have become friends with Olga over the last few weeks and I will continue to communicate with her and pray for her. I read your story and the way you speak of Olga was so touching, it made me cry. How wonderful that you have each other and truly love each other the way you do. I think I am in a situation more like you where there are some symptoms but surgery is still down the road a bit. Waiting and never knowing when it will be can sometimes be a little stressful but I will just keep educating myself here. I hope to get to know you and Olga more as time goes by.
