on behalf of Deborah Carie
Ded Carie’s husband, Tom, has end stage heart failure and recently had an operation to install an LVAD (left ventricular assist device) which pumps his heart for him. They just returned home and Deb has been off work for 2-3 months and counting to care for him. She is a mother of a talented high school athlete, she is the head of household income  and she will be off work to care for her husband while he waits to get on the heart transplant list. Tom requires intensive care from Deb, from giving medicine and shots, to taking blood pressure and pulse with an ultrasound and more. All donations will go directly to Deb and help with medical expenses, lost wages, groceries, gas and other every day bills like utilities, house and car payments. Any amount is greatly appreciated. This is such a strong woman who is kind to everyone. Let’s show her, Tom and their daughter some kindness as well.

As some of you have heard, Jewish transplant program has been suspended or shut down, I’ve had many ask if or how this will effect Tom. Yes it definitely effects Tom but Jewish Hospital is working with us to get him transferred over to UK in Lexington Ky where they have a bigger program there. This seems like a very positive move for Tom, the only draw back is it will be a farther drive, about 2 and a half hrs for us. God has always made a way, can’t start doubting him now! It will all work out. So thank you for all of your prayers and support, We love you all. It gives us strength to know we have so many friends and family behind us and in their thoughts and prayers. Tom is enjoying a few days home. Nice to spend family time together. (Photo taken in May)

Tom is in hospital once again . Due to his reoccurring issues and frequent hospital stays ... the drs are trying to speed things up for Tom to get his new heart . They are in process of moving him higher on transplant list . And told us this evening to be ready it could be very soon ! They are trying to get it as soon as possible. They may multi-list him as well ... So asking for a few extra prayers this week that drs can get all the approvals and exceptions they are working so hard to get. Also maybe a prayer or two for strength even though this is good news it’s is a bit scary and a lot to take in
Tom should be back home from hospital next week if dr gets the exception they are trying for. ( they want him to be able to be home as much as possible)He has good days where he can do more and not so good days where he is weak and dizzy and can’t do much . So on his good days if ya happen to see him out and about please stop and say a few encouraging words .... he would enjoy telling you all about the projects him and Haikey have done this summer . and talking some softball lol - Deb Carie
