Dear India and Steve,

I hope your waiting will soon come to an end and you both will be blessed with the perfect gift. My heart goes out to you as I remember how hard it was waiting in poor health for my transplant. May you both find sources of inspiration and strength to help you on your journey onward. The best of wishes are being flown your way on the wings of hope.

All the best to you too India. I wish that I could say that any of this experience has been smooth sailing. Hopefully, we will see the fruits of our frustration become new lives for both of us.

Good luck to you as well, India.

Steve- I hear you loud and clear!  I am in a similar boat, waiting for an organ and watching my body fall apart.  I pray for something good and true for both of us.  India

Hi all. My name is Steve andI have been listed at NY-Presbyterian/Columbia since July 2012. After suffering a cardiac arrest in February, I have been elevated to status 1B from status 2. I am now waiting for a hospital bed in a specialized unit or ICU tomorrow (April 19). Either I will be on 2 drips or a Swan until Iam transplanted. I should be a status 1A then. I have AB+ blood, a have been told numerous times that I would get a heart very soon. Let's hope that this time, it finally happens. It's very tough feeling like a puppet on a string, and I sure hope that something good and true is almost here.

Dear Judith,

I am sorry that you have had such a difficult time with the CMV and your kidney trouble. I hope that if you do get another kidney, it will not be too long, and it will be like starting anew, a blank slate that will not be filled in with any problems from the CMV again. I will be sure to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  Many hugs and best of wishes.
