For those who do not know me, my name is Bob Bolin and I live outside of San Antonio, Texas with my wife, Fonda.
I am currently 66 years old, living on Social Security, going forward with a double lung transplant. As of June 17th, 2019, I have been listed at Houston Methodist Hospital for a double lung transplant. Currently, my lungs are at less than 10% function. This all started in 1981 with bleeding lungs, which medical personnel could not diagnose the root cause. In 1982, I developed Rheumatoid Arthritis, which went away. Then, my body started attacking my lungs and my problems just were starting. By 1999, my lungs were full of fluid inside and out causing me not to be able to breathe in or out. This was a very critical and dicey time for me. The doctors tried diagnosing my lung problems as Wegeners, Lupus, COPD, and others. Even tried chemo for 90 days! Over the next 10 years, my problems increased with bleeding in and out of the lungs and I was notified of the eligibility for a lung transplant. Not long after, my niece was diagnosed with COPA disease, which was found as a mutant gene in our family. Our family is one of the very few to ever have this.

Hello friends and those whom have donated to our cause I am grateful. We are still in Houston awaiting the double lung transplant. We have since sold our house in Bandera now and will be moving from our RV to an apartment for now, but hope to return to Bandera when all is good and it fits God's plans as he is always in control, not us! Feeling ok and really enjoyed all the extreme heat this past summer and now the unusual cold, Haha, NOT!!!! God Bless you all and thanks for all your prayers and support. Please keep my wife, the donor person and family, as well as the Doctors as they are the ones working and suffering the most.
