Hi Barb. I am so honored that you are sharing your journal with me (and so many others too). I am learning so much, and am so happy that this journal is available so we can follow your journey. Congrats on the weight loss, when I saw you Friday I could tell at first glance how great you look! I'll be thinking about you as September gets closer, but I know you'll do great!

Great job with the weight loss. This should help with recovery! This journal is a great way to get up to date, and accurate, information about your journey before, during, and after surgery. I will be thinking and praying for you along the way!

We have the same basic story: Heart murmur leads to diagnosis of bicuspid aortic heart valve. Valve fails faster than expected. About 50 years old and time for a new valve.
The only difference is you have a date and I'm still waiting for a date. Dang you!! Well, if I have my way, I'll earn my zipper at the end of August. I guess we'll pretty much be going through this initiation into the Zipper Club together.
So, grab on, and hang on tight, we're riding this roller coaster together!
Think positive, keep on smiling, and soon we're going to be good as new.
