10 years!

I am very proud and emotional to announce that it has been 10 years since I’ve had open heart surgery! Today is a very big day for me and I couldn’t be happier :slight_smile: very proud of my scar too!

Jessica, how wonderful! We would love to hear of some of your achievements and/or experiences in the last 10 years. What have you been up to?

Well I was 8 when I had it done and so I learnt how to swim and to ride a bike :slight_smile: just recently I have done a 10 mile walk for my local charity too :slight_smile:

Happy 18th then, Jessica! Very cool about the charity walk. :)

I couldn’t have done anything without my mum and dads support :slight_smile: they inspire me to do more in life and they will continue to do that :slight_smile:

5 years now after ASD closure at age 28. My friend is 12 years now after ASD closure at age 22. :)

This was quite an undertaking for one so young! My sincere congratulations to you and your parents on this success! I think that this scar would also be something to be proud of! You really are an inspiration!
