Stable For Now

It's nice to be on hold for a while from tests and doctor's appointments. I read an article yesterday that indicated that aortic aneurysms grow slowly, at about 1 mm per year. If mine grows at that rate it wouldn't reach the critical 5 cm stage for seven more years. I also have some time hopefully before my aortic stenosis becomes critical. So the job is to stay healthy - I wish I could lose some weight - and stay on top of developments. My next appointment isn't until the Fall so I get to take the summer off.
