I recieved a call from my pulmonologist , After discussing what has been happening with my most recent bouts of CF. the question of wether I could obtain a lung transplant came up again. I was told that in order for me to get the transplant, that i had to have no other underlying conditions. This includes my Coranary Artery disease . I will not be considered for transplantation. I am saddened by this and very disapointed. I am having to face my eventual passing. He reccomended That i get pallitive care. I have not more options or time , I have to accept this. it is frightening. I am greateful for all that my Medical community has done . Though some have done more than others. I will live out what time I have left and give it over to my god. I am facing it as bravely as possible. I am glad that I did my advance directive. Now my love one knows what to do when my time comes. I am glad actually no more pain or breathing issues. Just to be free.

  1. Prayers for you in Jesus Christ Will and Name AMEN. I'm so very sorry.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that my cf friend. Would not they suggest a heart and lung transplant together?
