"thanks for care during heart valve replacement"

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary / Cardiology Leeds General Infirmary / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was admitted in bri in bradford they did not know what was wrong with me. It took weeks and weeks and i was getting worser. So they did a blood test and the blood tested showed something wrong. So they contacted leeds genral infirmary ward 10. I got admitted there and they found out that it was an heart infection and had spread all over.

So the surgeon had a meeting with my parents and family about the operation. The surgeon said i had only 1% of surviving, so a week later they did my operation. i woke up after 8 days, and the doctors were surprised i did not die.

But leeds general infirmary was a good and caring hospital. So thank you everybody for saving my life.
