In my own words:

I am a 69 year old, retired RN, very healthy, happy, living my life, trying to figure out what to do in retirement. Was diagnosed, quite by accident, with severe mitral valve regurgitation, moderate tricuspid valve regurgitation and enlarged heart.
Feel fine, except when going up stairs, and general fatigue.
Urgent referral to surgeon, truly expected him to say that I could come back next year to be checked, but after consultation, I signed the consent forms, and here we go.
