Dear Friends, Family and Community,

Breathing is something most of us take for granted. I know I did. But when your lungs do not provide the air you need, your body becomes paralyzed and you can’t move. I suffer from end stage COPD and have been on oxygen 24/7 for the past three years. My doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center told me that my only option is a life-saving double lung transplant.

hi, I haven’t logged anything for awhile. I am doing well for now. I will have another bronchoscopy on 9-1-2015. I am praying this comes back negative, it will be two in a row. I’m glad I’m better because I can spend a lot more time with my grandson, he gives me so much joy.

hi everyone, I haven’t been to my page for a while. I had my double lung transplant in October. It went well. Had a rib break and was bleeding in the right lung, they went back in and fixed it. I have had small amount rejection twice. We nipped that in the bud. I’m at home now. I’m very blessed to be writing this message.ot
