A little about me

I am 39 years old and had open heart surgery in July of this year to replace my mitral valve. I was very sick the last 2 years, and ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks in May with my lungs filled with blood, not being able to breathe. They finally figured out it was my heart, and off I went for surgery in July. I feel so much better it is amazing!!!

It has been a journey, that I wish I hadn't had to go on, but it has been worth it in the long run. Here is a picture of me before my surgery:

I will get one posted of me now, as soon as I get one taken.
