Strength in a Heartbeat


I’ve been following/reading a blog written by a Mother (Lynne), whose daughter (Lauren) had a heart transplant (following a long hospital wait). The posts by a Mother, show the heart transplant journey from a different perspective than mine as a patient. It can be a very emotional read at times.

You can read Lynne’s blog HERE.

Now, Lynne has written a book about their harrowing heart transplant journey, though I haven’t had time to obtain a copy yet, I wanted to share it with my readers. The Name of the book is “Strength in a Heartbeat”.

The link to her site for the book can be found HERE.

    Words cannot describe how thankful I am about the post you wrote. I cannot say thank you enough, I was so excited I had to show my husband. The website I started is to become a formus for families and recipients.Let’s bring the transplant world together .Don’t forget to order your copy and you could read our true feeling, mine and my daughter’s. At this point, Lauren was very sick in June, we spent june and july in the hospital. We came close to almost losing her. She pulled through it. At this time they are starting the process of resisting her. Not sure if we can do that again, yes we will do it but very, very scared. Help me to get this book out there if you wish.
    Much love lynne

    Lynne, Did Lauren go into rejection? Almost sounds like Antibody Mediated Rejection? Lauren and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all ~ D

      No it wasn’t rejection, they are calling it a heart shock. At this point, we had a biopsy last thursday no rejection but her heart is only functioning at 30%. They said no scar tissue, great news. The heart needs to recoup hopefully. Just starting the relisting is hard so hard emotionally. Thank you for the post, made my day. Did you get your copy of the book? If you know anyone that could benefit or would juts like to red it pass it on.
      Thank you again
      Lynne
