In celebration of my 300 day anniversary, I have finally decided on a name for my LVAD. Are you ready for it? ..... Can I create some suspense first?..... A little anticipation?.......Are you sitting down?.... All right, here goes.... His name is...... (drum role, please!)........ VITO!!!
I chose Vito because in Latin it means life. That's exactly what it has given me. How appropriate. And it sounds good, Vito the VAD. Vito meet Ivan, Ivan this is Vito. Some of you may not know, Ivan is my ICD. We are all working together.
So from now on, if you see me refer to Vito, that is my life-saving LVAD.
