Hi Ann, I am the other Linda in SC. If you want a lot of good info, read Linda D, Mitch Friedman Nancy Friedman (non cuz) and Ricki Shine. All of them and others have helped me out with this process. Now I just want to get it over with and get on with a normal life. I just have to convince the doctor of this.
This site is amazing you will be amazed at all the new friends you will meet and how close we all get. I am so happy I have found it. You will be fine I think you will probably get some help somewhere when the time comes. Good luck to you.
For the long haul
Hi Ann, my name is Linda Dixon and we have a lot in common. I too am a widow and just had aortic valve replacement 4 weeks ago today. I am doing great! Read my journal when you get a chance and let me know if I can answer any questions you might have. Welcome to the HVJ site!
