A quick update on my medical tests...
The mammography that was suspicious came out fine - a huge relief to my husband and me.
The results just came back on my echo cardiogram and showed that I have mitral valve regurgitation (doesn't that sound disgusting?) which is where the mitral valve doesn't close tightly and blood flows backward in the heart. It is pretty common and I'm taking medication that seems to be helping the symptoms I've been having.

I'm so thankful and appreciate very much all of the positive thoughts and prayers sent my way.
Though miles separate us and many faces and voices remain a mystery, I value you each and the support and friendship you have shown me.

To many more years together!

Heart problems have been present in my paternal family history. It is difficult to understand with what you do not see but only can feel my father told me. I too pray that you will return to balance with your heart.
