I just found out today that Cleveland Clinic has approved me for a double lung transplant at Monday's committee meeting. Now waiting for my insurance to give approval and a couple other formalities before getting listed. I'm very excited about this. Can't wait to be able to breathe easy. 11-18-15

The thought of being opened up and having a transplant is a little intimidating. I've let my health go a little while taking care of my wife during her battle with breast cancer (happy to say she won that battle) and I've been afraid I might be getting closer to being put on the list, although that is the ultimate goal. I'm proud to report that I've gotten back on track and found the motivation to get back to my exercises and I'm feeling better everyday. I'd also like to add, though I fear the invasive surgery that I inevitably have to have, I'm very confident in the experience and professionalism of my surgeons and transplant team at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. They are definitely some of the best healthcare specialists in the business.
