It is VERY common for patients diagnosed with heart valve disease to feel alone, confused and frustrated. I can personally remember those and other emotions when my cardiologist said to me, “You need a new heart valve. And, you need it soon.”
As I learned about the safe-and-effective treatment options for my bicuspid aortic valve, my fear began to transform into something much more positive. In particular, I became inspired by many patient success stories that I found online.
Speaking of inspiration, I wanted to share this story about Dexter, an extraordinary dog from Colorado. As you will see, Dexter exemplifies the cliche, “It’s not how many times you get knocked down that counts. But, how many times you get back up.”
Thanks for the inspiration Dexter!!! You truly turned a lemon into lemonade!!!
Keep on tickin!
