I have more lab work and X-rays next Tues and have to have a colonoscopy ASAP. If all goes well I should know if I have been accepted into the program within a couple of weeks. Once accepted you must stay within 2 hours of the hospital. That means no more Florida trips to see my 94 year old mom, no trips to St Louis to see two of our grandchildren. My mom knows I have pulmonary fibrosis but she doesn't know about the transplant plans so my sister and I will be making a quick trip down there in the next two weeks. This will probably be the last time I will be able to see my mom....that's a really hard one. My mom has dementia so I hope she doesn't realize this.
This is monumental in so many ways. Sometimes I feel really good about it and other times it scares the hell out of me.
