My heart goes out to the family. It is so sad to lose a loved one and no matter how much one tries to prepare one's self, it is still not easy. May God ease their pain in the coming days.

God grant me the patience, knowledge and understanding to do the things I need to do.

My condolences to his family and to those that loved and befriended him. This is just so sad.

I will be thinner and healthier if it kills me. We don't say diet in our house-ever. Diets fail!

I was so sorry to hear of Barts death. I pray that his family will find comfort knowing that he now is safe in heaven.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

I send my deepest sympathy to Bart's family. I'm sure they are hurting plenty, but they can be glad in the knowledge that he does not have any pain, and has that new heart he wanted/needed.

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.

From Bart's Facebook page last night:

Bart has gone to be with God. He was much loved and will be missed by all who knew him. He touched many lives and was an inspiration.

Rest in peace Bart emoticon

I am praying that Bart will get to where he can be put back on the transplant list again. I pray that he will get stronger every day.

Update on Bart: He is off the bipap because he couldn't tolerate wearing it through the night last night so he is back to regular oxygen. He is still on dialysis. He has not had a decent sleep in days so they gave him meds to help him sleep. His pressures are a little low but the doctors are ok with that if he can sleep for a decent amount of time. I am going to do the same. I have been staying the last couple nights close to the hospital just in case they call for any reason. Bart's mom has been here from Georgia since a few days before he was admitted to the hospital. She was here for a regular visit when this all happened and has extended her stay for as long as needed. Bart's stepdad drove here today from Georgia and his dad drove here today from Minnesota. Bart has a lot of people who love him!

Copied word for word from Bart's FB page @ around midnight last night:


Update on Bart: he is still on dialysis and as of today is on a bipap machine to help his breathing. He was deactivated from the transplant list at 10pm tonight because if a heart came in, it would not have been successful. He can (and I have faith..he will) be reactivated as soon as they get his kidneys, lungs and other things in better shape again. Bart is fighting with everything he has and th
e doctors say it is a struggle but they are giving him all they can. His doctors have prayed with us too. The power of prayer is amazing! Some good news...his clots seemed a little better today! I have faith...we will not give up...we will fight! It is a sucky situation but I just feel in my soul that he will be walking around with a new heart next year telling one heck of a story about it ..probably while he is on a boat fishing in the middle of a lake...lol...love you all! Thank you for the continued prayers! Will keep posting updates as I can!
