It has been almost 9 monthes since I found out I need mitral valve replacement. The stress is getting to me more and more. I had to get extensive dental work done beforeI can schedule my surgery. I am only three and a half weeks away from the dental work being complete. When I get the last 2 teeth pulled I will wait 2 wks then call my surgeon. I am not sure how long after I make that call when my surgery will be. The stress is unnerving. I have two sons ages 7 1/2 amd 6 1/2. They know I willl be having surgery. It seems they are almost as worried as I am. I don't know how to explain to them that everything will be okay. Any suggestions are welcome.
