Time Lapses after Surgery
In a week and a couple of days it will mark 10 months after my heart transplant. Many months ago I made a goal to write my experiences going through an LVAD (partially artificial heart) and my heart transplant. Unfortunately I was unable to keep my goal. This is due to the fact that time passes by so quickly once you have your new heart.
I did so many things that I wanted to do but could not because I had an artificial heart. I’ve ran in the rain, I have gone out to hang out with friends and work for extended periods of time without worrying about running out of battery, I’ve taken long car trips, and I’ve visited friends. And most importantly, I’ve come back home with my family.
So now that I’m a lot more stable and I’ve gotten a lot of things out of my system that I wanted to do for a long time, I finally feel ready to write about my experiences with the LVAD and about my heart transplant. I will make it my goal to write as much as I can about my experiences and I hope that it helps people out there going through the same things.
