Waiting for Heart Transplant

Hello Friends,
Before I begin, I want to thank each of you for your support and prayers. Without your prayers, I would not have been able to make it this far.
Earlier this year, my heart condition became so bad, the local doctors said there is nothing they can do. I was blessed that a doctor sent me to another cardiologist who immediately said why aren't you at the Mayo clinic.
We went to the Mayo clinic in Minnesota and went thru a number of tests and appointments. There was one test that could not be done on the first visit and we had to return 2 weeks later for a specific doctor and plan for treatment. During this time, we ended up in the transplant team and I was placed on the heart transplant list yesterday. Mayo clinic originally planned to place a LVAD pump into my heart like DIck Cheney received before transplant while I waited for a transplant.  It was estimated I will need to stay for 3-4 weeks. During surgery, they found my heart was so bad they had to remove it and place me on a total artifical heart while I wait in the hospital on a heart transplant. Without this surgery, I would not have been able to make it much longer waiting on a heart. 

The extensive Medical Expenses,Travel, hotel and car rental has become very costly.
After many asked what can they do to help, I am posting this in faith and know that those who can help will be blessed. I know God will provide all our needs.

On behalf of my family, and I, we Thank You for your generosity and prayers during this time!
