A special thank you goes out to Dr. Debra Fertel, Dr. Si Pham and my entire transplant team for giving me a second chance six years ago.
I am proud to say that I am doing really well and I feel so grateful to have my precious new lungs.
I monitor my health with our at home devices(pft, bp, glucose) eat healthy Omega 3 rich foods, exercise daily and try and give back each day.
What else can I say to a team that saved my life. They are the BEST as I am sure whoever is reading this will say the same about their transplant team.
I continue to make myself proud and at the same time think of all the others who stand behind me and root for me.
We have two new special people in the past two years that are working for Jackson Memorial transplant team. My new coordinator Ms. Joy and our new transplant team secretary Marian. They make you feel like you are part of the family.
I will be adding a bit more to this blog in the future.
In my next blog post, I will share more about how I met Dr. Fertel back in 1992.
