Julie - Wishing you all the best this week! You're going to do just great. I, too, was a medical minimalist and was just as scared about the hospital stay as I was about the surgery. But, it was a much more pleasant experience than I could have imagined and was over before I knew it. It might be our first rodeo, but it isn't for our cardiac teams. These professionals really know what they're doing! Trust them and concentrate on getting back to your wonderful life.
We'll be here awaiting your good news! ❤

Sending thoughts and prayers to you. When I faced my surgery I wrote a prayer and will ask for the same outcome or better for you. I felt total peace before surgery as: "The Lord would not bring you to this point and abandon you, place your faith in Him" Your surgery will be a complete success.
I’m new here as well and it seems we have some things in common , I’m also 67 and I didn’t know my mitral valve was a problem until December 2018 either when I went into a-fib and heart failure. My surgery is set for 4/24th and I’m hoping that the valve can be repaired. My tricuspid valve was also moderately regurgitant but the most recent TEE show only mild leakage now . I won’t know if the surgeon will need to repair that also until after the surgery is done. I know we’re both fortunate that this was discovered now and that we can have surgery to correct it. Do you have a date yet?

Thank you for your kind and caring words. Your story is so similar to mine....we will get thru this together.
My faith is strong and yet I am still scared. Let's keep in touch!
