Geez Linn.....We run in tandem sometimes don't we? I just got out today after a few days in the hospital for a sort of "tune-up." I was at the point of being out of breath and having angina after only a few steps. So I spent a few scary days seeing what had happened.   I'm out now and feeling fine so pass on to Tom my best wishes for a similar outcome.

You really have to be careful on the infections and the valve. At the least sign of any infection you need to be off to the ER and on antibiotics. My greatest pleasure in having the artificial valve is the way you automatically go to the front of the line at any ER by saying, "I have an infection, think I'm running a fever, and I have an artificial mitral valve."   You pass EVERYBODY!!!! LOL......Well hell, ya' gotta' get something out of this deal!

I'm thinking the best for you both as is Karen who can relate easily to your situation! Hang in.
