We are traveling to Cleveland Clinic next week to have some follow up testing/appointments with the lung transplant program. During our visit to their transplant program in October, we were told that I am a good candidate for their transplant program at the right time. In October, I was not quite ‘progressed’ enough to warrant listing. So basically…… I am sick, cystic fibrosis is a progressive disease, and it is good for me to be followed closely by the transplant program, but I’m not quite sick enough. Since October, as far as I can tell, my health has remained fairly stable. But I won’t really know until I get out there and repeat some of the testing.
I can honestly say that while I am eager to gain some clarity about transplant timing and whether or not I will be recommended for lungs alone or lungs/liver transplant, I’m not worried about it.
In a situation that would typically cause anxiety and worry, the Lord has given me an undeniable peace. I know that God will take care of everything according to His purpose and my good and I’m extremely thankful. He has brought me to this point and we trust that He will continue to take care of all these details. If you could pray for us, we’d appreciate it.
I’ll let you know how it goes next week!
