Welcome Beth. You will find lots of caring and supportive people here - and also Barry. ha ha. I am in Cleveland at the Cleveland Clinic (hotel) and my surgery will take place tomorrow. Best of luck to you and welcome.
If you wanted to retire early from Badcock this was not the way to do it! :) Kidding! Know we love you and will keep you in our prayers. Let us know if we can do anything to help you and Bill.
Love, Trisha, Nathan & Kurzen
When I found out I had a mitral valve issue, I immediately researched the Internet. I found several Sites with good information. My mitral valve issue was different than yours; however, my opinion is the Cleveland Clinic Foundation had the best information, and as I eventually learned more about them, I have reached the conclusion they are among the best experts, most experienced with heart valve issues, and may well be the very best for this on this planet. I happen to be taken care of by Dr. Mihaljevic and Dr. Gillinov, and their teams. I traveled to Cleveland, OH, for my repair, but I've learned there is a Cleveland Clinic hospital location also somewhere in Florida, although I don't know what the specialties are at that location. There are tons of places that have cardiac surgeons that can fix your issue; however, my opinion, when you have the most experienced take care of it, you have the ones that have the most insight, most likely, to do whatever is needed when they actually are repairing the valve. On the HVJ, you can read Ruth Howell's journal and see what she has to write about her experience at CC, as well as my own and some others. Good luck to you. Barry Stone on the Mtn in New Mexico
