Open Heart Surgery February 16

The good news is that I found a cardio-thoracic surgeon who I like and trust. Dan and I met with him Wednesday at Temple University hospital. He is a specialist in aneurysms like the one I have. His suggested treatment plan is comprehensive, which is what I want. Now it's time to prepare. Today I visited my dentist to get clearance from her. I'll need a tooth extracted but everything else is OK. It's a bit overwhelming but there is now a light at the end of the tunnel.

This graphic shows the procedure I will have to replace my diseased valve and aneurysm. It's a bit more than I planned for but it's necessary.
