I would want to stack the odds in my and my child's favor as much as possible.
Best of luck, whatever you decide


I have a friend who had a valve replaced over 3 years ago. At the time he was very apprehensive about having the surgery done. He had a leaking valve and was told odds weren't good of him surviving very long if he didn't have the procedure. He is happy now and though he's not supposed go out and play tennis or something similar, he is still able to lead a pretty active life. He is able to do much of what he loves like fishing, hunting, etc.

In my friend's case, they opened up his entire chest to repair his heart. Apparently, there are cases where they can go into your heart with the use of a catheter through your groin and fix your valve. I had an ablation where they went into my heart with a catheter through my groin to correct an atrial flutter (irregular heartbeat). It went very smooth and I've had no problem since; very happy I went through with it.

Either way, certainly wishing you the best for you and your family.


For Short Girls Only: God only lets things grow until they're perfect. Some don't take as long as others.

Well said.

sometimes god acts by making sure the right surgeon is there to do your valve and the right friend steps in to help watch your boy while your under the knife

his will not ours , may he guide the hands of man to do his will if needed

Steve, all my best in your procedure.

It's good to have it done, good medical procedures have come a long way and they are good at what they do .

What really helps, too, is that you are willing to have this progress done. You will feel so much better.

Have people set up and ready to care for you a bit after, and fix you some favorite meals .

Sharon,thank you. I live very rural and cant drive for 2 months etc. My son asked me other day...dad,what if its not successful(8 yrs old) He has NO ONE to take him if it goes bad so childrens services is his next stop. He is a 4.0 student and its him and I. He has a right for concern. Im hoping another option besides cracking my breasbone open and thats what they decided along with the fact that these need done about every 10 yrs with biological valves. Also the fact that if they give me a pig or cow valve maybe our border collie herds me around house. God has kept me going 13 yrs with leukemia using only naturals so I know its within his power to heal this also.

I would choose a horse valve grin Plenty of horsepower in me then !

There must be some in care nursing options that could help you after for a bit ? Speak to your doc of this. They will have some ideas for you , in options .

Meantime, maybe have foods prepared and frozen, or things that all that needs done is to warm them up.

Your son can do a lot too, to help. He is smart, and at his age, he will jump to the opportunity to help Dad out, and it will make him feel so good too.

You can direct from the sofa. grin

Aside from this, first thing I think of, are friends and relatives , if even on his mother's side ? that surely would be willing to step up and help if needed...

You are a veteran....contact your nearest office, or your doc would know of the right veteran's care center, if you work through the VA with him. I'm betting someone in the vet's groups , closest to you may well want to help with your son's care, if needed...

Just "thinking " out loud, Steve.

You will be fine, so less worry, better healing.

What’s the odds of a miracle vs. the odds of you dying without the operation? If you are a member of a church I suggest you seek advise from your Pastor as well as finding someone who is a member of the church to take your son into their home and raise him.

Pray for the best while preparing for the worst.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
