New Record!

Blow baby, blow!

Greg had a transplant clinic visit last week and it is ironic what the doctor’s say and how much patients can prove them wrong. This was one of those weeks because we were told a long time ago that lung transplant recipients will hit their highest lung function numbers at the 6-month mark and that is it. Well, we are happy to report that Greg’s record lung transplant pulmonary function test (PFT FEV1) has increased greatly since his last visit. He has gone from an overall lung function reading of 86% to 92%!!!

What a cause for celebration! Over 3 years post transplant and every day he is proving to the doctors that he just doesn’t follow the norm. Why? Well, he knows the law of attraction in this world and never once does he allow any doubts of his own health to come into his head. He is always positive about his health and maintains a healthy lifestyle of taking his medications correctly and on time, exercising regularly, protecting himself from anything that may be harmful in the environment by wearing a mask, and by living life to the fullest. Way to go hubby!!

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.
