The Plan

I'm "stable" for now and due for another echo next year. My cardio thinks I have a couple of years before the numbers would perhaps dindicate the need for intervention. It's not great to have this hanging over me for the indeterminate future. I also face the prospect of a long slow decline in my physical condition as the aortic stenosis worsens. Finally, nobody likes walking around with an aortic aneurysm. However, I have to make the best of the situation, keep enjoying life, and that's what I plan to do.

Cardiologist: "A Couple Of Years Before Trouble"

My visit with cardiologist Dr. Keane yesterday went well. He believes my condition is stable and that it will be at least a couple of years before my condition becomes problematic. My next appointment is in a year. He believes that this is safe. So I'll have my nech echocardiogram in April 2011.
