In my own words:

I have severe aortic stenosis. My heart is strong and healthy other than the valve. Just need to get this mechanical issue taken care of. The weird thing is that, for the most part, I feel fine. I just started having some chest pain a few weeks ago and it's not bad at all. Isn't it odd how you can have a life-threatening illness and not have any serious symptoms?

I appreciate all the support and encouragement you all provide and the education and resources this site provides. Thanks Adam!
