Thought I'd check in to celebrate my 17 year anniversary today!! I can't believe it's been that long since I received my CryoLife SynerGraft aortic homograft. The tissue is supposed to hopefully last 18 years, so I am so thankful that it's lasted this long. I have a slight leak in the new valve, but things are holding steady. Just wanted to say hello to all my old friends, and the new ones here as well, and have some virtual chocolate mocha cake with everyone!
