The Call

In the transplant community, if you hear the two word phrase “The Call” ….. it usually means that a specific patient matched with a potential donor and had been called by their transplant center to either come to the hospital or await further instructions. It’s an emotional time on so many levels.

Ten years ago today I was unconscious and near death.

Ten years ago today my wife signed consent forms to have me placed on a “Total Artificial Heart”, aka “TAH”.

Ten years ago today, before they could get the team together for surgery to place me on the TAH, my family got “The Call”.
