I took Marie's advice and have postponed my surgery. I did get scheduled for TEE and angiogram next tuesday and then spoke to Jeffrey Altshuler's office about an evaluation
with him. His office girl said as soon as I get these tests done she will arrange for me to see him. I notified my nurse at Hoag that I would like to postpone surgery so I can get more comfortable with all of this. I just feel I need more information before I proceed. I am feeling grateful for this web site because all of you understand our concerns going through this journey.
