One year ago today, Carlos had open heart surgery and LVAD implant. When I look back at the past year, I am amazed at where we are now. It was a rough couple months at first. In the Facebook LVAD groups, we've seen LVADers who have passed away over the past year. This is always a sad thing to see but we take it as a reminder to live life and don't sweat the small stuff. We expect that this will be Carlos' year for transplant!
