Finally, I have something to update about the lung transplant situation. Duke called me to schedule my 1 week evaluation. I go on February 18 for the entire week. This is the evaluation and test process. I was very disappointed to have to wait until the 18th, but at least I am in. I go back to Duke for chemo on the 28th, and I will talk to them again then. After the week of testing, the doctors will meet about my case. At that point, I guess I will go on the list if they deem it ok.

I am happy to get started, just wish it was sooner..... It is a roller coaster of emotions....

Oh - went to the dentist yesterday and got a good checkup. Just thought you would like to know.

Hey Bo!
You don't know me but I suffered from Chronic lymphociti Leukemia. It always attacks my lungs. In July 2007, my lungs were almost completely shut down with tumors, and also some in my liver. God is the one who knows all and will let you know where this will lead you. Approach Him like your Father and ask Him where is this leading to. Because peace of mind is important when the situation is grave and we have no control. May the Almighty Creator show you His face and fill you with His wisdom. God Bless You.
