Wanda Received Her Lung Transplant
Dear Family and Friends,
February 3, 2014
Hi to all my wonderful friends and incredible family! I am awed by you love, care, encouragement and support! I am certain I am doing so well because of your prayers! It was amazing how everything just suddenly fell into place so well. I know God’s hand was involved because the manner in which things happened could not have been coincidental. First, I received a call from the wonderful Church Medical Housing Ministry that one of the it apartments was available, on my way to secure getting the apartment, I got “the call” and had time to complete the acquisition of the church apartment. My friend, Barbara was able to come immediately. My sister-in-law was able to come from Austin in record time despite the bad weather. My children were able to get fli ghts despite the bad weather and arrived on Tuesday. The transplant team was very excited because the donor lung was such an excellent match! The surgeon completed the surgery in record time. I was told I came off the respirator in record time and everything has gone beautifully since then. The doctors think I will be discharged on Wednesday or Thursday. Now, that is to many well coordinated events to be .to just be coincidental! I am amazed and so very grateful! Carrie responded to the many requests of “How can I help?”,beautifully. I’ve left her response and my new address in this email!
Thank you a gain for your continual love, care, encouragement and support! I am truly blessed! Praise be to God! Blessings, Wanda

i have a new, left lung! So far, everything has gone very well. I am finally out of ICU and in a room. I will communicate here and via email mostly. I have lots of procedures and exercises everyday and am usually ready to rest after all those activities. My family and I are very, very grateful to everyone for your expressions of love and care! We cannot say thank you enough!

When I think of all the great times I had at LMS the majority of them come from my time in your class. I got so much enjoyment out of the concerts and music class. You were such a great music instructor. Get well soon and I am glad everything is working out for you.
