New Here

Hi My name is Jolie, I'm 22 years old from Long Island. Last year was a tough one, in May of 2018 I had a double valve replacement becuase I was born with tetralogy of fallot and it was time for my aortic and pulmonic valves to be replaced. About 5 months later I discovered that I had endocarditis and would need another surgery to replace both the valves again in November 2018. I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm happy to find an online support system like this where people can understand the difficult situations and the pause this can put on your life. (I'm still in college and had to withdraw in the fall to have the surgery.)

It's great to be here and I'm so excited to be apart of this community!

    Welcome Jolie! I'm originally from Long Island also. Feel free to pose any question or concerns you may have going forward. This is a broad network of heart patients with a wide variety of conditions. 

    I wish you well in your continued recovery!

    Jim
