Heart transplant not needed!!

Special note to back2basics and cgranulomatis:
(myocarditis attack in 2007)
I was told last week by heart transplant specialist that I won't be on the transplant list because my EF has actually improved. We were shocked to hear that because another dr had read the same echo and gave me a 15-20 EF. Dr McCants said it is 35-40, so I'll take that! In the future I may have a ventricular assist device. I am so relieved and happy. I have started to do my morning exercises--a shortened version--and just feel so much better now that I know I'm not as sick as I thought I was!

Thanks to my buddies b2b & drC for the info and support.

Sincerely, kitslady
