We received a call at 1am this morning stating that they had new lungs for Greg. Well, it is now almost 7:30am and they should be wheeling him down around 8am. The lungs are coming from Detroit, Michigan and everything looks great. So, ideally, around 9am the surgery should begin, 11am the new lungs should be here, and then 24 hours later Greg will be off the vent.Everything is set and ready to go. He has been prepped and now we just wait until he is wheeled down. Of course, he is hungry and tired (as we all are) but that should be taken care of soon.Wow! Have to jet! They are early and ready to take him down. Ciao
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.
