Ben came home on August 6th. He was slow moving at first, dependent on the walker but he is making progress every day. He looks forward to next week when he is expected to be cleared to drive. Ben gets on the treadmill and walks every day at a slow pace but he always makes sure to get his steps in. For the first time he is on high blood pressure meds since his heart is working so hard. We are so thankful to the donor and the donor family. It’s amazing to think that he has another heart beating inside him. I will post more updates as time allows. For now we are busy making family memories. 🙂

After surgery Ben had some bleeding so they had to take him back to the operating room to confirm if there were any tears or missed sutures. They were unable to find anything so the surgeon believed it was just the blood thinners and extra bleeding from surgery. They left him open to confirm. As of today 07.23.19 they are taking him back to close him up. It’s great news. The sooner he is closed the sooner he can get rid of the ventilator which is causing anxiety.
