The partner of John Prescott, who needs a heart transplant, has been speaking about the Welsh NHS' decision to grant him life saving surgery, following a report by ITV Cymru Wales.
I am absolutely over the moon with the decision being over turned.
This means that John now has his chance to stay alive after being given the news this week that time was not on his side.
It was crucial to have this life saving operation within days.
Prescott, from Conwy, needs a heart transplant after suffering a heart attack 18 months ago.
It damaged his heart so badly that only one side is working properly.
In order for John to be eligible for a heart transplant, he needs a pump - called an LVAD - fitting to his existing heart.
ITV Wales first met John back in October. He was waiting for an operation to fit a pump to his heart. He thought it would never happen.
John Prescott needs a pump fitting to his heart. He's been told it would prolong his life. The Welsh NHS says it won't fund the operation.
