    My last visit to NEMC was to start my evaluation for a possible transplant,but much to my surprise, and the staff their, they determined that i am not as ready as was first thought. This does not mean never, but at least we bought more time. I,ve also changed some meds. and have a new local cardiologist who has some HCM experience and is acquainted with the team at NEMC. I honestly think I.m feeling better just knowing that I have a better sense of direction and very competent team of doctors working for me. Thank you all for your support, and I,ll keep in touch.

      Sounds great Dennis ,
      Aren't they great there . We truly are lucky to have them driving distance to us here in New England.

      Hang in there and thanks for the update. I hope you continue to maintain your present feeling of stability and who knows you might feel even better if the meds and all keep working.
      Lots of best wishes.
