I would like to hear from others who were on the waiting list for a donor heart to find out how long you waited before a Heart was available?

Let me know if you find some helpful information. What questions would you like to ask?

@glinda, I want to welcome you to this discussion about heart transplantation. I see that you have recently joined Mayo Clinic Connect, and I, as well as the rest of our members, are happy to have you join us. I have a liver/kidney transplant, so I know the waiting and rollercoaster journey, but I do not know the heart related information that only you and other heart transplant patients and caregivers can provide.
I look forward to hearing more from you in the future. Feel free to read and join into any of the discussion threads that look interesting to you.
Thank you i look forward to talking with you and the group
And please feel free to ask me any questions concerning me and my transplant at any time
@glinda Glinda, According to my math, you will be celebrating your 6th Transplant Anniversary in January. Do you have any plans to do any kind of celebration?
Actually it will be my 7th and i usually just
Spend the day relaxing or go see a movie by myself and buy myself a cheese cake
Not many people understand everything i went thru with the transplant here where i live in eau claire wisconsin
@glinda, Thank you, I will be sure to ask away! I do need to warn you that my sons called me the “Interrogator”! They claim that when they brought friends to the house that I asked too many questions.
Glinda, How old were your sons when you transplanted? How did they handle Mom being so sick?
