Echocardiogram results

A message arrived from my cardiologist at Kaiser about the Echo test that I took on Monday April 18th:

"Good news. The dilated aorta is behaving itself & has not enlarged. The heart muscle is strong & the [replacement aortic] valve is working well."

I pretty much knew before the doctor's message arrived that my heart was working good. Before my 2014 operation which replaced my leaking aortic valve, I would be somewhat out of breath while walking. Now I never get out of breath.

When I go on my daily walks I may breathe harder, but never have to stop to catch my breath as I used to do.


  1. Nice...keep it up George!

  2. Dealing with health issues can be a scary thing but not doing so ensures a disastrous result. Keep up the good work George. We hope to hear more of your adventures.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Glad to hear your news George.

  4. Seeing this news is a great way to start the day! :-)
