After three months of testing and planning, I am quickly approaching aortic and mitral valve replacement. Both valves have been deteriorating and we have been monitoring for several years. Within the past four months, symptoms of heart failure are much more evident. My husband Mark and I really love my cardiologist, Dr. Karoosh Saeian and feel very comfortable with my surgeon, Dr. Robert McManus. I have a lot to do in the next two days...feeling anxious and nervous!
