The Windedness is Still an Issue

The surgeons indicate wait at least three months and ideally six months after stents before open heart surgery to replace the aortic valve.  This article indicates that it is safe to do surgery at six months after the newer stents that carry antithrombotic drugs. 

That would be January.  I suspect that I may have to skip teaching spring semester.  Expert declarations would also likely stop for several months.  I know there will be a week of recovery in the hospital and three months of recovery afterwards.
