Thank you for your response! I feel a little better since ive been hearing some positive things on here.A few q's for you though, did u have chest pain afterwards and how long were you down n out? Did you have a faster heart rate after wards for a few weeks? do you still have to take any meds? thank you again~MJ

Rather than promote our lovely city on the thread I'll send a note. Yes, we live in Portland. The Rose Festival is going on this week, had the Starlight parade last night - floats with lights at night. Let me know if you want some suggestions of places to see, what you like. Have fun.  irene

Just a quick note to say hi!   The doctor was very nice but I could not get him to tell me about the surgery procedure or side affects. I am not very  comfortable with him. This was my first visit with this doctor and the only one I will have before surgery. Maybe I will see one more surgeon. I have faith that I will find the right doctor. Thanks for checking on me. I will keep you posted. Debbie

Hi Betty! Thanks for the note:) Yes, I am pretty discouraged, as I had hoped that this was TRULY going to be the answer to my prayers! I am not sure what my Dr will have in store for me. He wants me to continue with Tikosyn in hopes that things may improve. I am doubtful, but what is the alternative? I see him again on the 30th of April, at which time a decision will be made regarding a course of treatment. I will definitely keep you posted and really appreciate your support:) ~Adrienne

Hi Betty!

I think of my heart forum friends nearly every day!  I enrolled in an online program to learn medical transcription, and I have been studying and transcribing as much as possible.  I couldn't keep up with the increasing activity and still stay focused on studying. The program is time-consuming and tough and I want to devote the necessary time to graduate with a good GPA which equates to more job opps : )

When I started helping out on the forums, there were only 2.  Eventually, there were 7 heart forums, and it was quite a job trying to keep up.  Before taking this course, I was managing, but now my focus is on graduating in less than the 18-month time allotment.  Later this year, I hope to be more active on the forums, but for now I just pop in to say HI to my good friends : )

Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry it took so long for me to see your note. I didn't realize I hadn't logged off earlier. Now as I come to shut my PC down, I see Connie responded to your note...As you can read, she's been a busy bee with all her studying! We miss having her here...she always knows just what to say to make you feel better! Her shoes are hard to fill:)
Hope to hear from you soon, Take care!

Hi Betty!!
I'm doing great!  I'm taking on online course to learn medical transcription.  Most of my spare time is filled with studying (again...lol).  I love medicine and language so it's a good fit for me.  I miss seeing you guys often, and I do hope to get back on the forums more frequently, but for now, I'll have to just pop in and out.  

Five months!!  You never drove us crazy!  Isn't it great starting 2009 in NSR??!!  My last checkup was good.  Whoever read the echo thought the valve leak worsened, but my doctor checked out the test results and is confident there are no changes.  HOORAY!!

Thanks SO much for dropping me a note!  If you don't hear/see me, I'm probably studying.  Stop by ANY time!!  I hope to get back on the forum more often, but I want to finish up the course first.

Thanks! I hope I am VT after this. I know the feeling about going.  I will be up all night thinking about the worse. By the time I go to the hospital I will have worked myself into a panic attack. I hope they have lots of meds for me!  I will use all your kind words to help calm me.

Hope to talk with you soon.
