it has been a few months now and i have not done my surgey because of fear,my lungs are hurting and i am getting short of breath i know i am dieing slowly,i just dont know why i am so stupid and fearfull.one of the thing that is stressing me is that in a few days my wife will give birth to our baby and i would like to be around for my child and my wife,i know life is good but still i am will to die rather than put my trust in god and his servants doctors.i really would like to just do this surgey decause the last time i spoke to my doctor he said i had mitral valve stenosis a tighting of the valve which is causing the pain in my lungs,and he told me that they can fix it by entering through one of my main vains either located in the arm or leg.another thing is that i need to work and save some money so when i take the time off my family dont have to worry about where the next money will come from. before i can do this surgy.if anyone out there who understand what i am going through please help me.your encuragement is greatly needed
