Transplant Update

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

The new heart has been successfully put in and seems to be doing well just checked in on Mom a little bit ago she is alert and knows that her new heart is in. They still haven't closed the chest due to bleeding from blood thinners. they will most likely be doing that some time today. So far all is going well

New Lease on Life Heart Transplant

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Today 5/4, I'm writing this at midnight still waiting for the good news. My Mom went in at 630pm for her heart transplant. When she finally makes it out of surgery it will be a long road to keep her healthy but she will have a working heart and will be able to live a more normal life although still restricted by medicines and the need to keep fairly germ free, she will have a new lease on life. Right now I can't thank the donor or their family enough, I may never get to thank them but I am going to send this out in to cyberspace thank you, thank you a thousand times over for the opportunity to have my mom get her life back to a more normal state.

    Wonderful, and I'm sure the good news will be very soon. You, your family and especially your mother are in my prayers, and I'm sure that the donors family has you all in their prayers as well. Keep us all posted on the progress and as soon as you hear something. God bless you all, and yes, especially the donors family.

The physical went well blood pressure was good and everything else went well I think it was my best physical to date although I know I'll get it back and it will say I am overweight but hey I know that and I am making a lot of progress and tomorrow my walking partner and I are going to add some jogging to our program.
Other good news I finally got my laundry done after 3 weeks (I've been working a lot). I am excited to try some jogging I think I will do better if I am jogging with someone.

    Physicals are so much fun. Too bad they don't always show the progress that we've made throughout the year. Keep up the good work. Hopefully the jogging goes well for you!

Energy level high

Monday, April 20, 2009

So it is in the wee hours of the morning at work and I am full of energy and it has everything to do with the fact that I ate right today and I have been moving a lot. I haven't had any caffeine in 4 days and I feel better because of it. I have my physical for work in the morning and I am hopeful that it will be my best one since I have started i feel like I am doing positive things for my health and I feel like it has improved since last year. I guess the tale of the tape will tell us.

    The positive results of a positive attitude - Go Girl!

Getting off the caffeine is quite difficult, it is addictive and not good for palpitations either.

Keep inspiring us! emoticon

But I haven't seen you in a week...looking for advice

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Thanks to work and the move I haven't seen my boyfriend in a week. He could have come over to my track meet last night but of course he was too tired after work. I'll be honest it irritated me that he wouldn't come over I understand he has reason for it too but the difference between us is that I would have driven across town to see him. I know he isn't the greatest at this romantic stuff but seriously I haven't seen you in a week and you can't make the tiniest effort to drive across town and share a meal at a track meet with me. I mean maybe I am being selfish but it would be nice to see him. Granted he tried making plans for another day but none of those days work very well either and they require the effort to be on my part. I know that I will see him because when it is on me we see each other when it is on him there is always an excuse. I love him but this kind of behavior really frustrates me. Any advice out there?

    I really wish I could help, but I haven't been in that situation. What kind of excuses does he have when it's on him to try and spend time with you? If you could have a talk with him not accusing him but say "You know, I really miss you and want to spend some time with you. I understand when you're tired, but even if you could spend five minutes with me before heading home it's better than not seeing you all week". That might help? All I can do is hope you guys get more time to see each other. I do understand the frustrations of being in a relationship and not seeing eachother (mine is military and is out on a submarine right now). It takes work.
