worried about my wife

Help Support ValveReplacement.org:



Hello all, I'm due to have my aortic valve replaced in a fortnight and I'm feeling pretty positive about it all. We discovered the leak the week before our wedding and with all the excitement and subsequent honeymoon we quickly put the thought of surgery right behind us. Now that the excitement has died down I'm starting to notice that she is becoming quite anxious about the procedure especially when others are discussing it. She maintains she is ok with it all but I really think she is just putting a brave face on it to stop me from worrying about her. I'm just worried that she will be in for a bit of a crash emotionally when we arrive in hospital and get down to business! Is there anything I can do to help ready her for the experience? Thanks in advance for responses
