Today I met Jack

Just when you’d thought you’d seen everything, someone or something new shows up. Today I met Jack.  Jack is a 70 year old gentlemen with a mechanical heart.  Three years ago his heart gave out and being older he was not a candidate for a heart transplant.  He was able to receive a mechanical heart.

Implanted in his abdomen is a motor that causes the blood to flow through his heart and out to his body.  This motor is powered by two external batteries which are worn in a vest he wears during the day and powered by electricity at night.  Jack has no pulse because his heart muscle does not function.  Pretty amazing and what a wonderful man.  I can only hope that if something like that ever happened to me I would be as joyful and gracious.

”Blessings on your journey”
