The most amazing thing happened recently.
My mobile phone rang at 3am and the Donor Co-ordinator was on the line telling me that there were some new lungs waiting for me.
I was able to leave ICU on Valentines Day, and now I'm on the respiratory ward recovering.
I can't write much about the experience at the moment as I'm still working hard on my recovery. It's a day by day roller coaster of emotions.
I am so truly grateful to my beautiful and generous donor family. My life has been on hold for so long, and now I have a chance to really LIVE.
If you're the praying type, please say a prayer for my donor. I certainly will be.
