Scott has been healing day by day, however, there was a bump in the road on Monday, October 30, 2017. He had appointments at the hospital for labs, x-rays, PTF's, and his regular visit with the "Lung Transplant Team." Everything checked out alright. On the way home from the hospital, Scott got a pain in his abdomen, which kept getting worse and worse until he could no longer stand the pain and we were off to the hospital and emergency. After tests, x-rays, ultra sounds,etc it was diagnosed as an " angry pancreas" caused by gall stones. On Wednesday, November 1st they removed his gall bladder. He was released from the hospital on Thursday, November 2nd.
Scott has had enough surgeries and hopefully he is done. He has had more than his share, but he never ceases to amaze me....He takes everything in stride and doesn't complain. In fact, I am the one who is having a nervous breakdown!(figuratively speaking).
SCOTT, YOU ARE AMAZING, AND I LOVE YOU!!!
Your wife, Regie Oman

Since the transplant, Scott has had a backache and has a hard time finding a comfortable position to sleep. Earlier this week, he had an X-Ray of his back. It turned out he has a ruptured vertebrae in the middle of his spine and also another one on the lower spine. He went to the hospital today (Sept 22) and had a MRI to determine what needs to be done to correct or at least treat. He will have to go to a specialist to get this taken care of. He had a Bronchoscopy to check out how his lungs are doing yesterday, and the lungs are doing good. Otherwise it is baby steps, and taken one day at a time. Thanks for your support.

Scott was diagnosed with COPD/Emphysema in October 2013 when we took him to Emergency, unable to breathe. He was admitted and stayed for 3 days. The Drs sent him home with an oxygen condendenser...
