News About My Mom

April 30, 2015

Last week we learned that my mom’s heart was failing to the point of needing a heart transplant.  (She has the same genetic heart condition as me.) While the news isn’t completely unexpected, it was still surprising that she was at this point.  

She had some tests last week and right now her transplant team is presenting her case to the transplant board for a recommendation.  Because of her blood type and the very high demand for hearts in Minnesota, the chances are low that she will receive a heart here without a special exception being made.  If we cannot get a special exception, we will need to travel out of state to a different transplant center for a heart.  

We will meet with her heart failure specialist next month to finalize a plan. Until then, my mom will be busy trying to get her house sold and making preparations for the transplant. 

So my family – especially my mom – could use your positive energy right now as she prepares for this journey. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
