PT new to MY LVAD

Hello! I was speaking with one of my patients and his wife yesterday afternoon. He is to receive his LVAD today. These folks told me about this website and other Facebook pages. I think these forums are an incredible resource not only to the amazing folks living with the LVAD, but to those of us who are there as clinical resources and, most importantly, a support team. I have so enjoyed getting to know my patients (friends, really). I have learned a great deal about the resiliency and strength of the human spirit. All I can say is "thank you" to my friends and their caregivers for enriching my life daily. It is a true privilege to be a small part of your lives. I look forward to reading posts and getting to know this community.

Thank YOU so much for helping save so many lives! LVAD professionals are very special people, uniquely qualified to help patients and their families in a very unique situation. I am also new to this forum, and think it is an incredible site for patients, caregivers, family members and professionals. Thank you MyLVAD!

heartPT, You were speaking to my husband and myself. You were a huge part as well as all the nurses at UVA in the recovery process of my husband. All the staff are angels in my book and couldn't say enough nice things about Dr. Bergin and his Team. Thanks for all you do.

deanday1, thank you for introducing me to this site. It is truly fantastic and offers a great perspective I often do not have access to. I hope all is going well for you and your husband. Please send our warm regards. Hope to see you soon in the clinic!
