Hi Everyone! Just a little update for you - I'm still getting treated for Primary Graft Dysfunction/Bronchiolitis Obliterans. This is a different type of BO than I was diagnosed with before my transplant, however, it is similar in that it damages the lung tissue and effects the overall function of the lungs over time. I have had to start using oxygen again off and on as well. My family and friends have been there every step of the way to help me and keep me upbuilt! Transplant is always a roller coaster, but I am enjoying being at home for now and getting to spend time with my sweet niece and nephew. :)
