Great News!! Part of the process of being listed on the transplant list is the doctors can move you up to the 1A position at their discretion. They would do this when there is no competition for the same heart. Even though Peggy's condition has not worsened the doctors have chosen to upgrade her as of today. She will remain at this level for 30 days unless she gets a heart sooner. After the 30 days she will once again be listed at a 1B. This means she now has a greater chance at getting a heart in the next 30 days. It doesn't mean it will happen but her chances are better. Please continue to pray for Peggy and Joe as well. It is difficult waiting. More updates as they become available.
