Welcome to my blog...

First let me say thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm somewhat new to the whole "blog scene" so please be patient with me. I wanted to start this blog because I need a place to why not blog?

As you can see by the title of my blog page I am indeed an LVAD caregiver. For those of you reading that don't know what an LVAD is... Left Ventricular Assist Device. It's a mechanical pump-type device that gets surgically implanted to one's left ventricle on their heart. It's battery operated and it basically pumps blood out to the body. It's often used as a bridge to a heart transplant.

I'm not a nurse, doctor, or anything remotely connected to the medical world. I'm a mother of twin boys and a wife who has been madly in love with her husband (Kevin) for more than 14 years. The term LVAD wasn't even a part of my vocabulary until last October when my life changed in the blink of an eye.
