Most friends know that on October 16th, 2020, I was give a TAVR, a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement. It was Dr. Cousimano and Dr. Austen, along with an unknown surgeon of the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre of Toronto General Hospital, who gave me this new aorta and forever changed my life.
Just think of this miracle, where they could go through a vein into my heart and change my aorta, without opening my chest. Incredible. We are lucky to be living at this time. Which makes me mindful of the many things we are surrounded with everyday, which are reasons to be thankful for.
There aren’t words to thank these Doctors and the nurses who changed my life that day, because they continue to change someone’s life, everyday. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
