My Biopsy was Friday on my ThumpersBirthday. they make a small incision in my Leg, and run a catheter down my vessel into Thumper's heart. They retrieve a tissue sample from my right ventricle of her heart……. or several pieces. They measure the pressures in My heart, and approximate the pressures in the chambers they can’t truly access….. the left side. Then the biopsy tissue is sent to the pathologist, And they called us 7 hours later after the Biopsy and the results are perfect they are 0 - 1 - 1 which is better than last time cause, last time they were 1- 2 - 2, so that's good.
My Name Is Megan, Im A CNA And 21 Years Old. I received a heart transplant in September of 2008. My new heart has given me a new chance at life and I am forever grateful to the family that gave me my "Angel Heart Thumper". Today I am 19 years old and awaiting a second heart transplant due to severe Coronary Artery Disease.
Know In 2013, I'm In Treatment For My Eating Disorder At Age 19 To Present. I'm Going To Get Healthy So I Can Recive A Secound Heart Transplant.
