Dad at 96 years old. Aortic valve replacement at Cleveland Clinic 16 years ago. No problems since. Played a mean game of tennis up until about age 90!

6 months post surgery (complete with serious complications ... two pulmonary effusions, internal bleed, infected sternal incision) I'm doing pretty well now. Cardiac rehab was VERY good for me! It was nice to know that I was being monitored during exercise. Today, I am so grateful just to be alive! I am also so very appreciative of this most-supportive community!
