Apology/New Plan

I think that I owe everyone an apology...I have had to take a little time to process everything that the DR. told me....I guess it has taken me this long to come to terms with it all..

So I got a call on Thursday the 4th after I had the Heart Cath done on Monday the 1st.. Dr. Kar proceeded to tell me that my heart is very small and that the Heart Mate II that we originally had looked at for me would not work because it is too big for me...
Then he threw in the BOMBSHELL, "we also noticed in this last cath procedure that your Tricuspid valve (which is actually bicuspid in your case) has a leak in it, it is a small leak, however that means that we cannot use the Heart Ware pump either, because if we were to put it in it would make your leak worse, and that would cause even more complications. So after discussing this with the Transplant team, and Transplant Board on Tuesday, we have all come to the conclusion that it is in your best interest to go ahead and proceed with the transplant. You will be placed as a status 2 on the list which means you are at home and stable at this point."

Needless to say I was speechless!!!!
After all of that researching, and talking to other patients about the pump, and finally concluding and having a peace about the decision to go ahead with the pump instead of straight to transplant....(after many long prayers) the decision was taken away from me.

So I was officially put on the list this past Monday, and now we wait!!!!
I am really hoping and praying that I continue to Serve, and Love and Trust HIM while I wait!!!!!!

  1. It's interesting that a few posts ago you wrote about how you hope you'll look back someday and see how much God grew your faith. And now you're at another hurdle. So it looks like this is just another thing you might be able to remember years from now as another step in your faith walk.
