Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. On Tuesday I'm having open heart surgery to replace my Mitral valve and repair my Tricuspid valve. I have Epstein's Anomaly, a rare tricuspid defect. The world's leading expert on Epstein's is at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, so here we are. I've been seeing Dr. Dearani since Alex was born and I've known the surgery was coming in the next few years. I'm confident I'm in good hands here at Mayo, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to be here. If you'd like to make a meal, we would welcome the love!
