So it’s eight years since my Sorin St Jude style aortic valve was plumbed in. All going very well, no real problems with my INR thanks to my Coagucheck device. I’m walking a circuit of about 40 minutes each morning come rain or shine with my trusty Beauceron – Angus. Cycling some, still enjoying a few glasses of wine each day. Cooking Mediterranean style in the spring and summer months, with plenty of vegetarian curry in the winter. I wish you all well, keep on ticking. With best wishes from Toulouse (France).
