Hello Aimee, happy birthday. We share the same month, and almost the same day (mine was the 17th). But, I'm ummmm MUCH older, lol.
I know the surgery must sound so scary for you, but listen to what these very intelligent (and supportive) people have said. You do have youth on your side. And, although it's still serious, this surgery is done so often now that they have it really perfected. My uncle was one of the first people to have a bypass back in the later sixties. I'm not sure how many before him had, it, but it was earlier in the history of bypasses. At that they only did one bypass. Now they do quadruple bypasses and send people home in a couple of days. The technology is amazing. You will do great and get through this in great shape. Good luck to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hugs, Kathy
Happy Grandmommy to Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekiel
