In a few hours, I'm off to the hospital, to have my thoracic aortic aneurysm repaired, and my moderatly leaking bicuspid aortic valve replaced. The surgery is actually tomorow.
I'm feeling OK about it, as I am in good health, otherwise, and I am only 44 years old. My surgeon put all my info in the computer and came up with a 6% chance of dying on the table and a 2 1/2% chance of having a stroke. I'll take those odds.
For those of you facing similar, I have learned that a positive outlook will take you far in the days leading up to surgery. I've been hanging with family, going out for yummy meals, and bingo, watching films, just chilling. And, my lovely mother in law is here, helping us out. What a god send send she has been.
I will let you all know how I got on, when I am back home and coherent. Take care all.
