Goodish News - The surgeon reviewed my TEE and says that the leak is minor, in the center of the valve, and is not uncommon in larger bovine valves. I also returned from a great hiking trip in the alps to celebrate 1 year (among other things)
A little over 8 weeks post op. Backpacking trip in Bend OR. Cut short by some early season very wet snow but we got 1 night in.
We are bustin out
Two days after surgery, Steve is looking forward to getting rid of some chest tubes
