My Thoughts & Prayers Are With Natalie!

There is nothing better than hearing from the patients and caregivers within our community.

A few minutes ago… Mark Uebelacker sent me this smiling picture of Natalie Uebelacker, his wife, who had aortic valve repair surgery earlier today at Northeast Georgia Medical Center. So you know, Natalie had a leaking bicuspid aortic valve. Like many BAV patients, Natalie also needed her ascending aorta replaced with a Dacron Graft due to an aortic aneurysm.

Natalie Uebelacker – Bicuspid Aortic Valve Patient

Natalie has been updating her Heart Valve Journal in the Patient Community section of the website. You can learn more about Natalie and get all of her updates by clicking here.

For example, Mark just posted the following update:

“The Doctor said the surgery resulted in the best possible scenario. He was able to repair the valve instead of replace. This makes him cautiously optimistic that Natalie will not require another surgery later in life. Natalie has opened her eyes and held my hand with her finger.” — Mark Uebelacker

My thoughts and prayers are with Natalie, Mark and all the people around them!!!
