I had my 2 years check-up yesterday. The EKG result is very good. And the nurse called me minutes ago she said my echo report is great and my doctor was so pleased with the result. Thanks God for all his blessings and thanks for all your support and prayers, my heart friends here. Hope you all do great just like me.
My dear heart friends, today is my 2 years anniversary. 2 years ago today I was on the operation table, and was not sure whehter I could make it and say hello to you on the other side as we usually wish our heart frienda. But I made it and improving every day during the last 2 years. So I want to encourage every one of our heart friends who is going to have the surgery: don't worry at all. With the advanced high-tech, with the blessings from God, with love and support from all our family, friends and our heart friends here, you can make it. Now I can work full time, can run, can work out every day and can cook delicious food for my family. With all these work load, my heart still works great. 3 days ago, I had my EKG, and X-Ray, my doctor said my EKG looks very good, and my x-ray shows my lung and heart
look great and the size of my heart comes back to normal. Thanks Adam for giving us a virtual community to care with earch other.
God bless you all.
Start to enjoy the very relaxed weekend before my surgery. I need to be admitted to the hospital at 5:15 am on sept. 19th, next Monday. My husband and I drove 2 days to CC. I had my pre-op tests done on this Wednesday and a cath done on Thursday. All the nurses and doctors said I am very healthy except a bad valve. Met my super talented surgeon Dr. Lars Svensson yesterday. He decides to give me a minimally invasive surgery. That is what I have been prayed for. His confidence gave me a peace of mind. I believe our Lord will hold my hand and walk through this difficult journey. I am ready to go through it and have a new and healthy valve. Thank you all , my dear heart friends, for all your prayers, caring and love. You guys have taught me how to be brave and how to build faith in God. I will see you on the other side of the surgery. Have a good weekend. Lily
Today I got a call from CCF, they set my surgery date on Sept 19th. We need to get there on 13th to have some pre-op tests done and meet the surgeon Dr. Svensson before 19th. Will spend a weekend there before the surgery. Any suggestions on the hotel and resturants near by ? I might see some of you over there at Cleveland. I'll pray for yall and me to have a successufl surgery.
I just start to prepare my surgical review package. It really frustrates me. My cardiologist does not want to refer me to CCF. He thinks a surgeon from Birmingham can have my heart valve fixed. Since I have aorta aneurysm, I really want to put my heart in the expert's hand. Without his referrel, I need to prepare all the medical record by myself. Otherwise, my cardiologist's office will prepare everthing for me. Distance consulting is very tough. Could you share something for me and give me some suggestion ? Thank you so much.
Dear heart friends, after I know the diagnosis I become so panic and emotional. Is this normal. It is very hard to decide the surgeon. My doc recommended me a local surgeon. But from this website, I found Cleveland Clinic is number 1 in taking care of aorta aneurysm. But its is 13 hours drive away. I can feel a peace of mind if I put my heart in doc. Lars Svensson's hand. I'm Asian America. Do not have relatives around. If I have op. at Cleveland, my husband will be the only person to be there. I worry about him. I really need your suggestions and advice and prayers. Thank you so much. Yall sharing give me a lot of encouragement.
