What a wild and crazy path my transplant journey has come to. I never in a million years would have thought this would be how I got my new lungs.
I don't even remember all that had happened to me I only know what people tell me or I read. The last day I remember is 11/28 and then the next thing I know I am being wheeled in for my transplant on 12/1 with my family waving at me down the hall.
Everyone in the hospital is calling me a miracle. They can't believe at how sick I was and how wonderful I am doing now.
I am having a little problem with retaining fluid in my legs but we are dealing with that and I am getting stronger everyday!
It so amazing to finally be on the other side of the fence. I waited SO long and watched so many people get there lungs ahead of me I thought my turn would never come. But the big guy upstairs had it all planned out and I got my lungs right when I was supposed to and straight from the surgeon's mouth "they are the best lungs" he has ever seen! :)
So thanks to all who kept tabs on how I was doing through the whole process. The thoughts and prayers where definitely answered and I am truly grateful.
