Patrick Needs Your Help

As we all know, life can be a winding road forcing us to navigate many twists and turns and obstacles along the way. Sometimes we can take on those obstacles ourselves and then there are times when we need the help of our family and friends.

3 years post transplant is a reason to celebrate but everyday is a celebration! The highs have totally outweighed the lows by far! God is awesome! As we travel through life upon our journey we’ve encountered so many amazing people – my fellow transplantees, the surgical team, doctors, PA’s, nurses & medical staff.
I pray for Rowan’s (my donor) family that they find comfort in knowing that I’m doing all I can to stay healthy and care for his gift!

Thank you to Kathy, Chris & Brad, our family & Friends for your endless love, support & prayers!

I hope all of you can stay Happy & Healthy in these crazy times!

It’s been ONE YEAR today (May 19, 2018) since my double lung transplant!
This has all been made possible with the blessings of God, the gift of my donor family, the fantastic love and support of my #1 caregivers Kathy, Christopher & Brad, and all the other caregivers, family, doctors, nurses, PA’s, nurses aids, friends, supporters, the list goes on and on!
I’m truly blessed in so many ways. God has bestowed upon us many gifts along my journey. Yes the road of a transplant patient isn’t easy on the patients and their families, but it’s the life we LIVE!
Since my last update we have received the letter back from my donor family and we’re happy to say they want to stay in touch and further the communication. Rowan (my donor) lives on in me.
I’ve had some bumps in the road, mild rejection, lung infection, sinus surgery due to a fungal infection, and some other issues.
Thankfully my one year check up showed no rejection and no infection and an awesome PFT (pulmonary function test). While doing my vitals, my blood oxygen level was 100%! What a gift!!
Thank you everyone for your prayers, love, support, cards, texts, calls, just everything!!!
The journey marches forward.
