657 days on LVAD, record maybe?

taken from the thoratec website FAQ on the thoratec TLC-II

'What has been the longest duration of support with the Thoratec?

566 days.'

Peter has been on it 657 days so far.

Surely after that long, Peter should qualify for the urgent list? I must say I'm completely astounded at how well you've kept things together - I knew it'd been a long time, but I never really knew it was THAT long. You're a remarkably brave and strong woman, and I really, really hope that you get some good news soon.

Surely it can't be much longer.

You should call up that Thoratec company and tell them your husband just broke their record. Who knows? Maybe he'll make it into the Guiness Book of Records? :-)
