Today Dick got all the drain tubes and wires pulled. He is FREE! He has been tethered for almost a year; tied to either batteries or electricity, with machines keeping him alive. For years he has had a pacemaker/defibrillator and last year doctors added the LVAD.
Not any more..... He is being sustained by his healthy heart that shows no signs of rejection. Doctors are sending him to the apartment tomorrow, Tuesday.
It is a great day! It is the first day of the rest of his life.
