@hopeful33250 Oh, that is good news! My aortic valve is "floppy" and I suspect, if I need surgical repair of the aneurysm, the valve will be replaced at the same time. I am happy to know that such repair may not necessarily require a regimen of blood thinners afterwards. This "aging business" is not easy.

I’ll say aging is surely an adjustment! I still hold out hope that my aneurism at the root will remain stable.

Yes, I have a "floppy" valve as well @degarden_girl. I understand what you mean. I'm trying to keep all of my original parts, but that might not be possible for much longer! Wishing you well. Please post any updates to your situation.
