So apparently heart transplants are pretty involved and being on a heart transplant listing is a tricky business. You don’t just walk up to a counter and say, “I’ll take one strong heart please.” even if it very apparent that the heart you are using is failing.
So here is the news for today. The Fisherman’s “numbers are up”, and he can breath. What does that mean? That means his blood count is up, and his lungs are not retaining as much fluid today. He is breathing better. . . today. And it’s always a good day when you can breath better.
Does that mean he is getting better today?
No it doesn’t but, it is a good day when one can breath.
Now we wait some more, and the business of heart transplants becomes a lesson in patience.
and I hope and I pray we studied enough and we pass.
