In my own words:

Always had a heart murmur, due to radiation to the chest for Hodgkins Lymphoma treatment when I was 11. Over the past 3-4 years, have had increase in labored breathing while walking on incline and stairs. Other symptoms have appeared of the last year, including Afib in August 2017 resulting in heart catherization. At that time, doctor stated need Aortic valve replacement within 2 years. Labs and symptoms have increased this year so planning surgery in the next month.
