Beginning of My Journey

So thankful to find this!!! I am a 69 year old nurse who has know that i have a MVP since my early twenties. However when I was about 5 my mother heard a "squeaking" in my heart and I was treated for pericarditis. I have done well my entire life and assumed that i always would---with a goal of living to be a 100!!!!! Recent Echo showed enlargement and after more echos, TEE and cardiac cath am scheduled for MV repair November 15. Very very anxious. Hard to think about doing this when I feel so good. Doctors recommend doing it know while I am "healthy"
My anxiety about all of this is overwhelming and almost paralyzing. Would love to hear from others with similar situations. Thank you
