He was officially placed on the urgent list on friday. Apparently on Friday, a call did come in, but it wasnt suitable for use, so we werent even told. A doctor told him this morning.
So what is the situation now?
Peter is on the urgent list for a minimum of three weeks (from friday just gone). After that the situation will need to be reviewed. Initially there was talk of replacing his LVAD, this has now been changed to, if need be, they will replace the external parts of his current LVAD. Its too dangerous to leave him on his current one long term, due to the build up in the machine, adnt the problems it is causing.
Because of the amount of pain Peter is in, around the LVAD drive line site, we are hoping that a heart transplant happens and he wont be much longer on the LVAD.
We know the risks, we have been here before, i wont deny it, i am scared, peter is scared. our lives hinge on the next 3 weeks.
