I am wondering if you are the Patti that just gave excellent advice to Steven(Popeye) on his guest book.
If not ignore this, ha.
If so, just a cheer to you as you gave him great advice that he needed to hear.
I read your journal and have no idea if you had a successful surgery but it would seem you did. I hope all is well for you.

I just found your journal, and I'm sorry I didn't see it before your surgery. I live in Wisconsin also (Hartland), and I had my mitral and tricuspid valves,repaired by Dr. Gillinov two years ago. Your story is very similar to mine, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
I hope your surgery went well and you are on the road to recovery. I look forward to reading your next update.

Good luck from Jack and Rhonda in California. We're thinking of you. Jack's exactly a week after his MIVR surgery and has been home for a couple of days. My Fitbit says we've already gone 6,000 steps and the day's not over. Don't get discouraged if you're not feeling quite that spry yet. Those first few days after surgery can be a real b!tch.

Patti, glad you are taking the"bull by the horns" so to speak. Cleveland is good. They will take care of you. I'm praying for a great outcome . Keep us posted.
