Carilee49,My heart and my prayers go out to you, Nathan. It's very brave of you to share your story and let others know that not only can you go on after something this horrendous, but that God walks beside you when you do. It will be my constant prayer that you continue to do well with this valve. That had to be very stressful to go through, but at least you're here to share your experience. And that's very good! God bless you always!
