Congratulations. I hope you "keep on truckin'"!

If you want to share, why did you switch to a mechanical at 66, didn't want a re-op?

Tom, exactly, hoping to avoid re-op, and assuming the roller-coaster of decline and recovery surrounding each surgery would not get easier with age.
same here at 63, one less thing to worry about, and at the end with age people end up taking warfarin for other reasons anyways

Congratulations, Debby! May you have so many happy returns of the day that you tire of counting them!

Thanks, that's exactly why I chose to be a cyborg as well :)
