New heart bills, medication, travel

$800 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 36 months
I'm 52 years old. I spent the last three months in the hospital with heart issues. Just as I was put at the top of the heart transplant list, complications (lung bleed) arose and took me right off the list. Now i'm preparing to go back on that list. Hospital bills, as you know can mount quickly. Medicare and medicaid don't cover everything. Not to mention the home health care I'm receiving and medications . Please help me get that new heart without having the stress of worrying being the first thing on my mind during my recovery.

6/18/16 The fastest update.. I was admitted to the hospital on 5/26/16 and I'm here until I get my heart transplant. Today makes 23 days.. keep praying it will come soon. There's not a lot to do here but think about your situation and keep the spirits up if for nobody else but yourself. The low sodium group I belong to has put together a radio station that I've been DJ'ing for, a few hour a day. It definitely keeps the mind from going places it shouldn't. Since my stay, my heart failure has increasingly brought on new symptoms and issues. Please keep those thoughts and prayers going if you think of it. Thank you for all of your support! <3

If you find yourself with internet access and want some great music to listen too... tune in between 10am-3pm West Coast time. We are nationwide and always taking requests, shout outs and dedications. I'll be sharing a couple low sodium recipes from the low sodium group I belong to and just plain silliness. direct from the University of Washington Medical Center. Playing songs from the 60's through today. please keep those thoughts and prayers coming and thank you for all of your support! http://www.shakinthesalt.caster.fm

5-24-16 ... it's seeming like forever for this to happen yet I realize there are so many waiting for the same thing and much worse off than I am. I only wish there were enough hearts to go around. Unfortunatly there just aren't. If you've never thought about it before, please think about being an organ donor. The life you save may be someone you've known or someone that may have a life back Thanks to your generosity. I fear for the future as kids of today don't seem to think about these things. Please educate your kids on the importance of organ donation. Of course I'm not getting better, only worse. I don't want to be just another statistic, just another percentage of those that it just doesn't happen for. A share can be a beautiful thing. Thank you for all the help from those that have been there with even a kind word. I'll keep you all updated as to my progress and struggles. Thanks again for everything you do! <3

4/25/16... It's been awhile since my last update. Last Doctor visit I was informed I was finally in the top twenty on the transplant list.. (that was about 2 weeks ago) I got a phone call the other day from one of the Regional Heart Center at the University of Washington asking if I'd be interested in sharing some of my low sodium recipes, maybe talk to one of the support groups... etc. Of course I was honored and excited.. I gave a definite yes to that one! I love to help people whenever and however I can. Low sodium does not mean low or no flavor! Other than that, I'll try to remain patient and wait for "That Call" and will let you all know when that happens. I'll also try and keep you informed as to the cooking fun. Stay tuned... :)

Not much new to report. Weekly doctor appts are going well. Trying to be as patient as possible just waiting for "the call" to tell me they have a matching donor heart and it's my turn. Happy Easter everyone and thank you all for the love and support. A "SHARE" can be a beautiful thing....
