Time For An Update

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.
