    Dear Liz,

    Prayers are heading your way for all of you. I can only imagine how frightening this is after my own experience with fluid build-up. A couple of months after my myectomy I encountered fluid build-up around the heart and required emergency surgery to perform a pericardial window to drain it. Please keep us posted on his progress and the doctors decisions as you have time.

    All the best,
    Lynn Stewart
