    Welcome from me too @Angie14. It is great to see you have joined us.

    I am well thank you - I would ask you how you are but I hear you are having a particularly difficult time at the moment, bless you. 

    I hope you receive your heart transplant as soon as possible. However, I recognise this hasn't gone as smoothly for you as would be preferred. 

    How are you finding the LVAD? Hopefully, it's at least providing you with what you need and deserve whilst you wait for the heart transplant. 

    I can really hear how difficult this is for you at the moment, especially with the cold weather only making it worse for you at the moment  :(
