I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Adam and this community for connecting us all and having the opportunity to share and learn from our experiences. I had aortic root and valve replacement on 9.21.15. Truly what brought me the most comfort in the preceding weeks to the op, were the stories and insights shared by so many of you. Thank you all and blessings in our recovery and to those about to go through this. Life is truly amazing and full of wonderful people wanting to help.
