: My husband had a virus attack is heart, Dr sent us home with encouraging words, your heart is wore out, your too old for a transplant. You only have 8%to 10% ejection fract,and just give him 2months or less to live. But God had other plans!! Went it came time for test at the hospital with this Dr., he was called out in a Emergency and we got a nice Dr. who just happens to work on the transplant team, and he said his 8 to 10 was true , but that he could help him and that he had a lot of good things about him to get a heart transplant. Needless to say ,We never went back to that first Dr again.
: We go to church and beleive in the power of pray. Last Nov.99 my husband had a Echo on his heart, his ejaction frac. went up to 36%. Well we went to the Dr. the 25 of this Sept,His Dr. wanted to but himon
: a research for a new pace maker ,but his heart had to be 35%or less.I told my husband that we needed to put it in God's hands. 27 of Sept. did another Echo of his heart. That WED. eve the Dr's office called and said we have good news and bad news.
: Good news is his ejaction Frac. is now up to 45%to 50% now. Bad new is he isn't able to be in the research for the pace maker!


Linda,
That is great. How old is your husband and is his heart enlarged?
