traveling by air

My grandbaby is due in a week. Can I still fly 700 miles to visit? I have severe aortic stenosis and will likely have surgery. I cannot work because of the lifting and 8 hrs. on my feet. Is this a wise thing to do right now. I really want to be there for the delivery.

I wish I could help, but I think the only person who can safely answer your question is your cardiologist.  They would not mind a phone call from you, I'm sure.  Good luck with your grandchild.
