For those of you who don’t know this, I (Sherry) have COPD. It has gotten progressively worse over the last year or so. My pulmonary doctor asked during my October checkup if I would be interested in being evaluated by Duke Medical Center for a lung transplant. Of course my answer was yes. Anything that could possibly improve my health would be welcome!!
It did not take long for the initial paperwork to be done but took a few days to get everything processed for insurance purposes. After that was completed we immediately received a call from Duke to schedule this for December 5-9. This will involve 5 days of testing before we will know if I am approved to go forward and get on the list for a transplant. We do not know much more than this at this point in time but we hope to learn a lot more while we are there.
We will be leaving for Durham, NC in the morning and will be staying at the Spring Hill RV Park in Chapel Hill, about 15 miles from Duke. I am hoping it will not snow!! Extra stress is not welcome!!
Safe travels everyone!!
