I was born with mitral valve prolapse and so all my life have known that it was there, in my heart. Sixteen years ago I started seeing a cardiologist on a regular basis. In September 2014 I had a stress test with echo that appeared to go well. Four months later, in late January, my next echo did not show good results and my cardiologist told me it was time for surgery. It was a shock! So, the whirlwind toward surgery caught me up and I am on this crazy ride. I am so relieved to find Adam and the other kindly spirits at "HeartValveSurgery.com" to help me navigate. Thank you Adam!
