Less than 24hrs till "showtime" at Mayo Clinic, in Minnesota. Dr. Dearani will be preforming my OHS to replace an aortic valve and ascending aneurysm up to the arch. Plan is to go with the on-x mechanical valve.

I gotta say, the nerves are getting more real now! I think my main fear is the pain afterwards and just the fact that it's open heart surgery. It's just a typical Wednesday for my surgeon, but quite the change for me in my life!

I will be sure to update this thread when I'm good and ready, hopefully I'm not too foggy!
Hope it went well. I'm coming in one week myself.
