This just in...

Liz had a discussion with Rita Rienzo regarding the different valves and it seems the recommendation is either the pig valve or the cow. (Not the lion valve as Kenny recommended which would make her Lizzy, the lion hearted) Both of those have a 20-25 year lifespan and would not require the daily taking of a blood thinner - which can prove to be a real pain in the neck. Ultimately though the decision will be the doctor's so time will tell.

  1. Hey Liz..hope all goes well! You are in our prayers! My Mom had a St Jude valve (aorta), titanium, installed when she was 76. She ran on that valve for 11 years with no problems..the rest of the body gave out! I like the family picture. Love, Tom, Lucy and co.
