Susan Shares Her 5 Years of Success

Five years today “June 25, 2013” I had my LVAD placed. It is a HeartWare and I have never had any problems at all.
Very lucky on that point. Doctors that I have at the University of Washington Regional Heart Center are doing a wonderful job keeping me going.

Hasn’t slowed me down much. Grew up on a lake and swimming. No swimming or soaking baths.

Travel takes a little extra time. Traveled to Hawaii, Reno, and areas where I live.

My LVAD is just a part of me and I have no problems dealing with it. Happy to have it.
