An amazing story. My wife and I have a friend whose youngest daughter has gone thru numerous. Heart surgeries since birth. You all are amazing testaments
Going thru the operation at age 56 for the first time (even though I've know about it my entire life) seems like a walk on the park compared to those with life long conditions. Hang in there.
I think this site is an amazing chance to witness and observe.

Joey, welcome to the Community. It sounds like you have already been there and done that with respect to heart surgery and that you are facing it again. You are obviously a survivor. I'm a Christian and will be praying for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery. You can do it! Keep us posted.
