Peters heart function is poor by the looks of things.

they did another echo this morning. he said even he could see it was bad and he doesnt have a clue about what to look for. another angio tomorrow. if things dont pick up then a LVAD may be needed.

he is no way fit enough for a transplant right now.

Sorry to be dim, but what is an LVAD? REally hoping and praying that his health imroves and that you keep finding the strength to go on

Misdee so sorry to hear this,

If it is any consolation I have struggled with the heat, last night DH got a bit of a fright, I went to put my shoes on to eat supper on the patio and my feet were so big that the only things that fitted were my slippers.

I had to take a double dose of Frusemide, which did the trick, piddled like a pup, but the down side was that I was having out of body experience feelings this morning.

So, whilst poor Peter is in a worse place than I am,what I am trying to say is I know the havoc the weather will be playing with his heart.

Not sure this will help, but it made sense whilst I was typing it IYKWIM

Much love

Really hoping he gets well enough for that transplant misdee and thinking of you all as ever

noddyholder Tue 21-Jun-05 21:39:28

Really sorry to hear this i hope they consider the LVAD soon I think i told you i have a friend in the states who had this and it really helped Do you think they will keep him there now until they do something definite for him?Look after yourself this weather doesn't help I have been huffin and puffin all over the place though nothing like your poor dp xx
