Another Medication Down!

Greg had his 6-month transplant clinic appointment this past Monday and we are proud to announce the following:

  • Lung Functions are in the high 80’s
  • The lung stent can be removed
  • No more need for daily Pulmozyme inhalations

Greg has opted to keep the stent in his airway as it is not causing problems and going in for a bronchoscopy is more risky then leaving it in. He has never had a problem since the stent was placed in his right bronch back in late 2004 so he figures there is no reason to fix something that isn’t broken. Of course, he has no problem discontinuing the inhaled Pulmozyme as this is his last inhaled treatment to get rid of. If you were doing this medication for over 15 years, you would want to get rid of it too!

So, we are on cloud 9 at the moment and what a special week it has been. Not only have we gotten this great news but today is Greg’s 33rd birthday! A wonderful and happy birthday it is!

After her husband received a double-lung (bilateral) transplant in 2004, Shannon founded the Angel Cove Organ Donation Awareness Shop, which provides awareness t-shirts and gifts products for transplant recipients, living organ donors and donor families - giving 100% of the profits to help heart and lung transplant recipients with medical costs. Shannon lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her wonderful husband and two chocolate Labrador Retrievers.
