You have been through so much. Here is hoping that things are OK with your new mechanical valve. I had my valve replacement surgery on 1/9/14, just a few days after you. Keep us posted.

Just remember that with all the modern technology and amazingly skilled doctors and healthcare staff, miracles happen every day. All your heart brothers and sisters, will help encourage and guide you through, whatever journey your body takes you on. I will pray for improved health for you. My sister Mary(Mia) had a mitral valve replacement done on July 29th. She was afraid,worried,upset and very nervous about her upcoming surgery.
Through her new friends, on this wonderful site, she was comforted, by others that had been through similar journeys. Let them guide you and pray for you also. Wishing you much improved health. Jackie :-)
