We heard from Duke today. I have been approved for a double lung transplant based on certain conditions being met:
1. Must gain weight (and this is the #1 priority)
2. Must complete pulmonary rehab successfully
There are a couple of other, more minor things also.
Charley and I discussed where we felt I should do the rehab and we agreed that Duke’s facility would be the best. So, we have canceled our Rock Crusher Canyon reservation in Florida for Jan-Mar and have postponed our plans to go to Disney in April. We will be leaving for Chapel Hill on 12/30 and will be staying at the Spring Hill RV Park indefinitely. My rehab begins on Jan 3. After the above two things are successfully completed I will be subject to more testing at Duke before I actually make the list. Nothing as grueling as this past week though (I hope!!).
So even though many of you have already wished me well (and I thank you so much for that), please keep me in your prayers that all of this will be successful!!
