the LVAD has been a God-send in that Dad has returned to a much greater level of health. however, the driveline exit site is a consistently open wound and has held pseudomonas infection since Oct of 2013. to begin, the iv antibiotics were not much of a financial burden, but in March 2014, we had to switch to a stronger antibiotic (meropenem) and the cost increased. however, during that admit (where they changed the antibiotic)
, Dad was listed for heart transplant. the iv antibiotics will continue until a donor match is made and so will the expense associated with it. after transplant, anti-rejection meds will become another expense.
we do not like to ask for help but we have come to a point where we have to. thank you in advance for whatever you can give. i assure you that each and every cent will be used for Dad's meds.
Dad has a dream to watch all 4 of his grandchildren grow up and you can be part of that dream.
