46 Days and Counting til I leave for the ACHA Heart Convention.
Yesterday, I met someone that said that she has a co-worker that has many family members that have congenital heart defects and needed someone to talk to about it because he is in heart failure stage 3 and needs help finding a Cardiologist that will take into consideration his families genetic heart history as well as his medical history.
I immediately gave him my blog, website and email address as well as phone number and certainly hope that he logs on and allows me to help or at least hear what he has to say. She did not give me his name, however, I hope that he contacts me or at the very least takes a look at this blog.
There are many, many of us facing these situations and I certainly hope that they find the help they need even if it is not from me.
Shout out to all the Adult Congenital Heart Patients!!! Let's band together and help each other out!!!
Friend Request me on facebook "Dana Ward".
I am an open heart surgery survivor. I have started this blog as a "support group" especially if you are in the Southern States. I live in Texas and had to travel to New York City for my second surgery. It was a Fontan Reconstruction. I have been in heart failure twice in the last 6 years. I want this blog to be here for any and all patients that need help either just listening to my experiences or that need help finding the correct surgeon or cardiologist to help them with their problems. I don't have any professional medical training but I have become an informed patient.
If you are out their and need help or just a friend to talk to or just to listen, please fill out my contact form and I will be happy to assist. I am going to the ACHA Heart Convention in Los Angeles in 48 days, from April 28th-May 1. It is my first chance to connect with a REAL Support Group and get the information that I have longed and needed.
I am on FACEBOOK as Dana Ward and if you would like to "friend" me that would be outstanding.
My goal also is to start a regular "Support Group" in the "Dallas, TX" area if anyone wants to help with that also, contact me via the Contact Form on my website. www.congenitalheartsupport.weebly.com.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and I hope that I can be of some help to anyone that needs it.
