Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I am using it to keep family and friends updated about me in one place. I have heart mitral valve leakage that was discovered last year and thru tests they say is more serious this year. Carle only does open heart surgery for this other than a non-invasive clip that is usually reserved for patients that are older and in ill health and are unable to go thru major surgery. They are also concerned about how my MS will react afterward from the anesthesia so the clip may be an option. Be praying about that. I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
