Thank you all for the good thoughts and prayers.

Unfortunately, they refused to do the surgery today due because they say I am not breathing well enough for the anesthesia. I have to get clearance from a pulmonologist. And my blood pressure is too high.

I am so frustrated because I had finally managed to get myself calm enough and ready for this only to be told it can't be done.

There is a big part of me that wants to say screw this! They pushed me toward this when I might have been able to wait and they never warned me about these things that had to be under control!!!!

"I finally have my heart!"

To the perps: Don't worry about me coming after you. But you damn well better watch out for God! "Vengeance is mine", saith the Lord

If you are on blood pressure meds they will want to increase your dosage or start you on BP meds if you are not. This is the best thing for your heart, especially if you want to live a lot longer. If you smoke try to cut down or quit. You can fix your breathing problem temporarily with an asthma inhaler like Primatine but this is not a good strategy in the long run either, as it will also raise your blood pressure. How is your cholesterol? If it is high you may need to modify your diet too, because you don't want your veins all clogged-up either.

Hopefully they can get you back in to see the surgeon soon.

Have hope,
