Met with the surgeon via video conference and the surgery has been scheduled again. June 15th is the date. Glad we are finally moving forward. Right now, no visitors allowed so will be doing this without my husband. For those who have done this alone, any advice for my husband and I?
Celebrating my older son's birthday. We were looking for a little inspiration! Hopefully I will be able run up those stairs after surgery instead of slowly plodding up them! 😁

My husband and I went to see a surgeon, Hiroo Takayama, on January 31st. We had a great conversation with him and we are moving forward with the surgery and have scheduled it for April 1st. I'm a little relieved to have it scheduled and a whole bunch nervous. 🙂
While discussing the various valve options he mentioned a trial for the On-X to use Eliquis instead of Coumadin. Trial is scheduled to start this month.
For the folks out there with BAV, how hard did you have to push to get family members checked out? Both my sisters were checked, they both have faint murmurs, and neither of them have BAV. I have brought both my boys to be checked, they are 19 and 22. The cardiologist said since neither of them have a murmur they don't need to be checked further until they have one. Since I didn't have a murmur diagnosed until I was 50 I'm a bit concerned and both my boys want to know. Just curious if anyone else has run into this?
