Hi Pat Lucy and redrose, I just wanted thank you for your kindness. I got through the surgeon ok. He was a nice man straight forward shoot from the hip kind of guy. Wish I am glad about. He said I need to lose weight which I already knew. I told him I had already started on the treadmill. He was happy about that. He said I have a 5% chance of not making it thru surgery. I told him I'll take my chances. He also said 50% people with lung transplants make it to 5 years. He did say that since I am so young it might be possible that I can get another transplant if needed.
I have to have a carotid endarterectomy. He wants that done before anything else gets done. I was hoping we could bypass that one but he seems to want it done sooner then later.
Well I had a long day I'm gonna lay down
thanks again and pat thanks for the call and I hope you and hubby get better soon.
love ya all
