On Monday my Dr. forwarded a request that I be considered and evaluated for a lung transplant at Notre Dame Hospital. The nurse told me that the Dr. had sent three people there for transplant consideration in the last six years and all three have had successful lung transplants. Tomorrow, four days later I will have a CT scan of my lungs and heart so that the Dr. can rule out blood clots as a reason for my rapid decline in the last few months. He said that Hopital Notre Dame was going to do one anyway so it was a head start. I never, ever imagined that I would have a transplant of any kind.
