Dear Doctor Tzifa,
I wish to express my gratitude to you for the 'miracle' that occured to me. I remember when I was diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta, I was in shock for the first minutes. I was left spechless and couldn't come to terms with the reality of having this condition. I could see the disappointment and sadness in my parents' faces and I realized the severity of the situation I was in. However I calmed down and accepted the decision to get it fixed.
And you did fix it. The operation was success and I know now that things are looking bright for me and thank you so much for this. Now I can see happiness and relief in my parents' faces. My experience throughout this little ordeal has been great. I have learnt so many new things abd after all this you have inspired me to become a cardiac surgeon when I grow up! Thank you!
