This period of watchful waiting has been incredibly difficult for me and my husband. It's awful to have such a big issue lingering over your head without an answer as to when it will be resolved. I am 34 and would love to have children but was advised that having children in this condition would be extremely high risk due to the strain on my heart. I recently met with Dr. Mark Gillinov at Cleveland Clinic and I was approved for Da Vinci Robotic surgery. I am terrified, excited and relieved all at once!
