Good news everyone! James had his 3 month evaluation with the transplant team today. They said his test scores are stable which means he’s doing well. They want to try him on anew type of “portable ventilator” that he can wear around during the day. It will help keep his co2 levels lower so he will hopefully be able to walk further and do more. The only problem is that our respiratory supply company doesn’t carry it, but the one he uses when he’s sleeping can be adapted to be portable although a little awkward. The plan is to try this until our company can work something out to get the newer/smaller version. We love our current provider and don’t want to change. They also want James to keep loosing weight and going to pulmonary rehab. His next evaluation is the end of August. Please continue to pray and share this page. We still need to raise $10,022 to reach the $11,500 goal that MUSC set for us. We’ve had a fundraiser with Pampered Chef and LulaRoe. Is there anyone else Y’all would be interested in? If so, let me know. We love you all and thank you for your support.

Hello everyone. I apologize for not updating sooner. James had another pulmonary eval with the transplant team in November. His pulmonary function numbers were a little lower then they had been in May, but higher than they were last February . About a week after his appointment, we got a call from his caseworker and she said that they’re trying to get him ready to list. His next evaluation is in February. It’s exciting yet a little scary as well. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Thank you for your support.
