Special Edition: My Lung Transplant Journey November 24, 2013 - In the Que

I've hit the 6 month mark on the waiting list for a double lung transplant. That's . . .

  • 15,897,600 seconds
  • 264,960 minutes
  • 4,416 hours
  • 184 days
  • 26 weeks (rounded down)

  • During this time, I've discovered many things about myself. Here are just ten:

    1. I'm not very good at waiting.
    2. I still don't like using supplemental oxygen although it's necessary to keep me alive and kicking.
    3. Eating a lot to gain weight is not as easy as it sounds.
    4. I can spend hours each day doing a whole lot of nothing.
    5. I cry over many things, but if it's spilled milk or messy things, I usually swear.
    6. I am oh so proud of my children. They are smart, talented, athletic, funny, determined, helpful, and resilient people despite the challenges of having a sick mom.
    7. At times, these same children drive me crazy!
    8. I chose the best husband ever. I could not imagine navigating this journey without him by my side. I often do not give enough credit.
    9. He drives me crazy too!
    10. Pajamas or yoga pants are the new black.
