Primary Childrens Medical Center, Utah, United States
I spent 127 Days at Primary Childrens Hospital in the PICU. I was born healthy but became ill after catching a virus that caused my Cardiomyopathy (an enlarged heart). My heart was not pumping and I was dying. We were granted special government permission upon emergency use to implant the "Berlin Heart" an LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device) for babies. This would give me more time to wait for a heart. I was the first patient in the state of Utah to receive this device. I received the experimental device in November 2007. It saved my life and I received a heart transplant December 2007, two days before Christmas. My new heart has given me a new chance at life and I am forever grateful to the fammily that gave me my "Angel Heart". Today I am 5 years old and awaiting a second heart transplant due to severe Coronary Artery Disease. My family and doctos were shocked to learn that I needed a new heart once again.
