So it's been 18 months since my last echocardiogram and visit with my cardiologist. The cardio switched universities from Penn to Temple so my appointment last May had to be cancelled. I will get an echo in mid-October and see the cardio then. The last time we met he told me to "put it out of you mind," because my condition was stable. I don't think there has been any significant change since then. At least I don't feel any worse. My only complaint is that I get winded going up steps or walking up a hill. The doctor said it was a combination of the aortic stenosis and my age. So if that's the worst I can't complain. We'll see how the echo and appointment goes in a few weeks.
