Unfortunately, there were other troubles with my attack
that left me in need of a machine to pump my blood.
am now on a new pump machine called a "Heart Mate 2"
which has gotten lots of press. It's being used in
many states and I think it will help many very sick people
in the future. This instrument has given me back some parts
of my life. I can go to movies or once in a while,
out to eat. I am so lucky to have such a caring husband
who is with me every step of the way. But the bottom
line for me is that I need a new heart.
wait for this very special gift takes time. I have
been called a couple of times, but the hearts weren't right
for me. I am now trying to eat well, put on weight,
and hope that miraculous call comes in one day soon.
hope life has been good to you. Make yourself a donor
the next time you go to the Motor Vehicle Department.
What a wonderful thing that is!
