If there was ever any doubt, we now know that I am really on the transplant list at Duke!! We had our first dry run last night.
Got a call at 4:36PM yesterday afternoon and were told to report to the hospital as soon as possible. Lungs may be available!! Arrived at the hospital before 5:30 and got checked in to the short stay area. Had to put on one of those awful hospital gowns and then had all of the necessary blood work, chest Xray and vitals done. Then the wait began.
At 2:30AM this morning we got a call from the coordinators and we found out that when they arrived to actually harvest the lungs they decided they were not acceptable. Duke will only take the best and I like that!! So we were mustered out and allowed to go home.
This was very scary for me but at least now I know what to expect and how the process works.
Keep praying for us that we will get some great lungs soon!!
