Hi Everyone, here it is November 2 already! In five days I go for what is hopefully my final evaluation testing! I hope by the end of this month I get the thumbs up!!! Meanwhile I have fought off another infection and really getting reconditioned which is an important part of being listed. The surgeons and docs want each transplantee to be in top shape to help with the post transplant healing process. I'm a bit nervous but excited at the same time. I'll keep you all in the loop! Ciao!

Hello everyone, Happy Halloween its 10/31. Today I have to go to the Audiologist. 7 yrs ago, I was fitted with a cochlear implant to finally let me hear from my nerve deaf left ear. Quite the miracle! Today I go for a routine hearing test since I have Meneiere's Syndrome which afflicts the hearing and my neuroaudiology doc keeps an eye on my right inner ear for changes in my hearing. So far my Meniere's is in check! So a week from today I'm hopefully doing my last day of prep testing for my lung transplant following the next day with one of the transplant surgeons. Could the Listing day be far off? Send some positive affirmations my way folks please? More to come soon.
