When I was a kid I went to the hospital for a heart murmur. I haven’t had no problems and now I am almost 60 and having heart surgery. They call it critical aortic valve stenosis, I will be having a mechanical valve put in and it really is scary. My surgery is May 20 and hope it all works out for the good. The doctors have all said I was born with this. I have read some of the stories on the website and decided to write mine. Thank you for the good work that you do. I also would like to see my grand kids grow up.
