I have a question to ask. Before I saw my cardiologist I dont remember feeling so tired all the time, after I seen him I feel I get tired so quickly. I wonder if it all in my mind. Has this happen to any one else.
I called my cardiologist today and spoke to the secretary. She said that the cardiologist is going to a board meeting with the other surgeon on the 16th after my categorization. and that when they will make a decision when my surgery is going to be.
I still can't stop thinking about the surgery. I have done of research and studying for the surgery.
I also have read quite a lot of the journal that been posted that is also helping.
I finally down loaded the book The patience guide to heart valve surgery, .
I will keep you all posted what going on,

I was born with TOF. I had surgery when I was 2 years old. They put a shunt in a first. Then when I was 5 years old I had the major surgery they fixed the heart then.
About 30 years ago I remember the cardiologist told be that I would to have surgery soon.
I never dwelled on my heart promblem and never complain to people about it.
Until recently the last year I have been thinking about my heart. I shouldn't of been surprise when the dr said I needed surgery, but it still was a shock.
I am a personal care worker working at a senior home.

Last week I was in Ontario moving my things out of Ontario to move it to Saskatchewan.
I sometimes I wish I never told any one about my surgery. I was consistently reminded to slow down take a break you are going to fast.
I now that my friends care but I just found it annoying to hear that.
I now my limitation. My parents taught me not to dwell on my heart condition.
I just can't stop thinking about it. The one good thing being with friends and family I didn't think about it.
Then there are other people tell me to stop thinking about it and don,t make a big deal about it.
I just have so many question I like to ask my cardiologist.
The cardiologist said my surgery will be around 6 month that was last month. I have a feeling it will be around Christmas time.
I enjoy reading the other journals. I like looking things up.
I enjoy also hearing from other people. I don't feel so alone about this now, It feel good I can write my feelings down and other people now how I feel.
I went for a walk with my dog today about 15 min walk and I found I was tired be time I got to the post office. I wish I brought the car. In the past I would of been thinking it because I was walking up hill. know All I think it because of My heart.
I was never the one that used to dwell on my heart when I was younger then the last year I have been thinking more about it. Now that I found out I am having surgery I can hardly stop thinking about it,
I am also having problem find a patience journal and when she posted something yesterday I found her journal but I could find any more pages she wrote.
Can any one help.
