I am editing my story because I feel my path to getting a new valve has been edited. I was on track to getting my new valve when this all started back in December and then since December it has been delayed three times. The first time it was delayed it's because the doctor was going out of town, the second time it was delayed because they found the abscess in my mouth and I had to get the that cleaned up with a endodontist before I could get the surgery for my heart so that's where I am today. I am 5 days away from getting my valve replaced, that is if the endodontist on Friday says everything is good and your root canal infection is gone. How this whole thing started, I believe now that it's due to the fact that I have mixed connective tissue disease. I believe wholeheartedly that this is the main reason why I have stenosis of the aorta. With what I've been reading and researching and hearing what other people talk about is that mixed connective tissue disease plays a huge on your heart . Anyway, I hope to be writing you lovely people May 2nd to tell you everything is good. I praise God everything's going to go wonderful I just hope I hear from more people before Monday especially those who have had the t a v r method thank you guys for listening.
