By Adam Pick on October 16, 2012

I’ve said it before and, hopefully, I will be saying it again…. I love hearing from the patients in our community after their surgeries!

This time, Shelly Gould, from Redding, California, sent me a collage of her first anniversary from mitral valve repair. Doctor Luis Castro from Sequoia Heart & Vascular Institute performed Shelly’s surgery.

Congradulations to you Shelly, Rock on!
I’m a newbee. I’ll be having my Mitral valve “hopefully repaired” in about a month.
I’m 53 and scared, but, have read Adam’s book and read many accounts of the success stories and have faith I too will find a way as you and all the other have.
I’m greatful to you and the others for sharing your stories. It is very encourageing.
I going forward with the notion as the saying goes…..God wouldn’t bring us to it……….. if he wouldn’t bring us through it.
