Is that MY heart?

 

 

I asked if it would be possible to see my old heart.
Not only was that wish granted, but I got to hold it in my hands and share it with you in this picture!

The pathologist took time to show me my old heart. It had already been dissected and examined so he showed me all the workings of the human heart, for REAL! I got to see into the arteries of my heart which were clear and unobstructed. Each valve looked just like the pictures you see in the books. The problem with my heart was evident and the pathologist pointed out the deviated septum where it had deviated over to the right. The left ventricle was enlarged and because of the septum deviation, the capacity of the right ventricle had been reduced.
