Lois discusses activities she is now able to do following her heart valve replacement and shares advice for women who might be afraid to have a heart valve replaced.

Well, I can clean my house better now. I am driving my car, which I wouldn’t do until I was sure that everything was fine and see my grandchildren. I will travel to different states to see them. I am going to Kentucky in June for a college graduation and so I just look forward to each day and it’s like an extra gift that I was given that I didn’t have before because if I didn’t have the surgery I would have been long gone and the doctors did wonderful job on it.

I would say they should check into it further and go by the advice of their doctor or get a second advice from a doctor, but to not wait because I could be gone. I was lucky.
