When Eliana arrived, she could not walk or even stand. As the team at NewYork-Presbyterian waited for her new heart to arrive, they worked to nourish her body as much as possible. About a week after getting on the transplant list, Dr. Uriel got the good news that they had secured a heart.
I feel like a brand new person. Living on the LVAD taught me how to live in the present moment and to be grateful for every second of life and every breath I take. Now, with the heart transplant behind me, I’m traveling and living life from a whole new perspective.
