Kelly,

Yes I have, you can get a better feel for who I am in my intro or on my page.

I had no genetic problems concerning the heart, my parents lived a long and healthy life, passing away in their early and late 80's. My Doctors call me an Enigma... I was in the best shape I had been in over ten years, which included running a mile in nine minutes the day before I had my heart attack.

Be well,
Annie

Annie, I love your sig quote!
May I be nosy and ask if you have heart failure also? I know that in our society/culture, African-Americans seem to be more prone to it than pasty white folks.

It is not all women on the site, I assure you - and men are welcome. Little green aliens with three sexes and purple polka dots are welcome, if they are interested in losing weight and in encouraging others! (For all you know, I'm a little green alien myself - the picture of me could be just as much another picture of one of my pet rabbits.)

The point is that we're all PEOPLE who want to lose weight and aren't afraid to ask for team support. Mach's nichts what the rest of the personal details are.

Boy, that was certainly a goody-goody sounding lecture, wasn't it?

How do you remain positive? How can you not?

You are STILL here and that should be enough!~!!

I go to see the Heart Surgeon on Wednesday, which is when they will decide if I am a "Good" candidate for another heart; should be interesting, because I am a bit tired of surgeries and am still healing from the last one.

But... I am STILL here.

Hi Kelly I just seem a little awkward because it is all women on the site. I hope that does not matter. Thanks again for your support.

Hey, we're here to help! I am not on the transplant list, not even the low-priority one, although my EF would qualify me for it. I try to stay in better shape than the numbers would suggest.

Have you been over to http://www.healthyheartmarket.com and read Pete's story? He got his transplant, finally, and he says it was definitely worth the wait.

Some positive thoughts: you were born in an era when there is medical treatment for this. You live in a country where you have access to medical care. And, not least, you have friends who are rooting for you!

Hi littlemann, My name is Rick I go by cardioman. I had a good heart until about 2000 i was 36 now I am 43 I need a transplant, but I was doing fine on the meds. Last week I went to my Dr. in S.F. and found out that they wanted to but on statis 2, which means I can get a call any time. I have just given it the lord and put it in his hands because the more (we) worry the worst it will get. Keep looking foreward.
