Another Short Conversation...

Dad had his Stress Test today. We don't know the results. But in the car on the way home, Dad said the cardiologist that was in the room reading the test said she thought she saw a problem with the Mitral Valve. This is a valve he had repaired 5 1/2 years ago after his heart attack.

Dad: The cardiologist thought she saw a problem with the Mitral Valve.

Me: Is that the one you had replaced or repaired?

Dad: Repaired.

Mom: What are you talking about?

Dad: The Mitral Valve in my heart may have a problem.

Mom: I don't think I've ever heard of a Mitral valve in the heart...


Me: What kind of pizza do you want Mom?

Mom has been a RN for almost 60 years. I'm just sad.

That one hurts... Grandma taught my science when I was homechooling and that's one of the many parts of the human body we studied and she made me study those HARD...

I am honestly at a loss for words.. other than I love you mom!
