His excitement was over my Echo Cardiogram performed in July at Stanford, which reflected an Ejection Fraction (EF) of 40.2%
When I asked if he thought I might see further improvement down the road, Dr. Dhar went on to share that he is limited with the tools at his disposal, and that sometimes results such as mine just cannot be explained. He asked me to keep doing as I had been, and to be thankful for all the love and support I have received from family and friends to help me get to this place.
As we walked from the office after my appointment, Mark and I reflected on my condition the first time I entered this office. The fact I walked very slowly, and had to stop to catch my breath. I was in very, very poor health with an EF of 12-18%.
Needless to say, it was time to celebrate with a sip of champagne.
AND now the Cardiomyopathy warrior!!!
