I guess I should have started my journal from the beginning. My name is Judy Walden, I am 58 and live in High Point, NC with my husband and we have a 28 year old son that lives in Georgia. Three years ago they found an ascending aortic aneurysm with a bicuspid valve and mild stenosis. They've been monitoring since then. The aneurysm is still 4.6cm but the stenosis is now severe and I am much more symptomatic. That's why we scheduled the surgery for 10/24.
Monday, Geno (my husband) and I met with the surgeon and scheduled by valve/root replacement for 10/24/12.
Now the count down begins to prepare myself and my family for my surgery. I have given everyone a copy of Adam's book to read. Any other suggestions?
