Hi Jefferson


and welcome to the Aortic Dissection group! Like many of us it seems that the angels were watching over you.. I also had a similiar set of circumstances on my dissection and on my wifes prompting decided to set up this site for all of us AD survivors and also for familes and loved ones of people that did not make it...

You will find a lot of support here as its what we do best, so please jump right in and make yourself known to everyone. Maybe start a blog with your story as you have told it on your joining as it is best on a blog or even on the discussion forums. So, once again a big welcome and a Happy and HEALTHY New Year!
