    Shirley, I am so glad you are going to see Dr. Maron. I hope he can turn things around for you and avoid transplant. But remember transplant waiting is worse than transplant itself. I will keep you in my prayers. Good Luck. :P

    OOps,
    She is going to see Dr. Barry Maron. Shirley will clarify this herself. We spoke last night on AOL and we finally were on the same tract after we both got a little confused one thinking one thing the other another thing.
    Thank god for instant messaging , I might have been standing in Boston waiting to meet her while she was in Minnesota. Only kidding

    Shirley ,
    If we have to be glad about a tough situation it will be that you are going to see Dr. Maron. Of course you will see Dr. Udelson too and he is great also. You will be recieved with open arms. They are all so nice and offer a team approach covering all the bases.
    I hope you can get in soon and if you wish I can meet you and Ken. If there is anything I can do to assist you let me know . Of course you know we can discuss it when we chat.
    I think I begin to see a light for you Shirley.
    My thoughts and prayers, hugs too.
    Pam

    Going to See Dr. Maron

    Well

    I finally got back from Richmond and seeing Dr. Gilligan, he is at a loss he doesn't know what to do, so i never had to ask he said i'm sending you to the big man up North Dr. Maron, he said have him look at you being you will need a second opinion anyway before the Insurance would pay a dime for a transplant and he may even know of something he hasn't tried and that would be even better than a transplant if there was something Dr. Maron could think of doing to improve my quality of life, oh and by the way the ICD was still pacing me even though he had it set to pace me only if i dropped below 60 beats per minute and it paced me 27% of the time over the last month so now he has it set down to 40 and we will see what happens, i hope it doesn't pace me or that my heart rate doesn't fall that low, but that is what has happened so far. Everyone have a great weekend
