heart transplant, inspirational story, organ transplant
Million dollar question...
We have had a lot going on this week, but the one that has been on our whole families mind was "is Lauren going to be re-listed for another heart transplant?"
The doctor's started the process of the possibility of Lauren needed a new after her heart went into Heart Shock this past June. They told us they wanted to start the evolution and all the testing just incase Lauren's heart doesn't make a good recovery. The last couple of months have been tests and tests and tests. Digging into every aspects of our life again. To be placed on an organ list you must be approved. You are not just placed, even if your need it.
All tests and evaluations are complete. The transplant team had their meeting this morning to decide on Lauren's fate. We were told we would receive a phone call at some point today.
The phone rings and and they told us, Lauren was denied to be placed on the transplant list due to (OK GET READY) her heart is moving in the right direction.
Best new ever. Really do not know how we would have reacted if they were going to place her on the list again. All I know is we don't have to find out.
Embrace every day, you never know what is lurking behind you.
