Leslie passed away on March 23,
2014. Our deepest sympathies to her family
I wish to one day be an old lady....I know, you all are
wondering, WHY? No one want to get old, but I do. Because in my
reality I might not get the chance unless I get a Double Lung
I will be staying at my home in Illinois while waiting. When a
lung is available they will call me and have a plane bring me to
the clinic as soon as I get the call. Once I get to the clinic,
I will have the transplant and be in the hospital for 10 days -
3weeks depending on my recovery and then I will go stay with my
sister for 6-8 weeks with a caregiver.
I was told at the Cleveland Clinic that I am a good candidate
for this transplant because I don't have any other major medical
problems and I was put high up on the list.
