I was recently asked if I would be willing to share my transplant evaluation process for a blog with a company attempting to create 3D printed hearts for transplant. This is what I shared: https://biolife4d.com/linda...

January 22, 2015 was the first time I was admitted to the hospital in advanced heart failure. I was listed for a heart a little over a month later. I had my first open heart surgery 2 weeks after that.
I still have not wrapped my head around how quickly my health declined and the decisions and sacrifices made to keep me alive. The past 3 years have been quite a blur.
My medical team informed me that I cannot work for the next 6 months. At that time, we will revisit how I am feeling and my see if my lab results have improved. I have been instructed to self care and I am enjoying taking care of myself.
