Iv'e just had the call!!!!!

15 mins ago while frying some bacon the phone rang. It was Sharon my transplant co-ordinator saying they may have a lung for me and to stay near the phone this morning while they do an antibodies match check. She will ring as soon as they know so its fingers crossed.

This could be a very long morning but I'm managing to stay calm so far.

The bacon will have to wait now as Iv'e been told its nil by mouth just in case and it smells so good.

This could be the day Iv'e been working towards and I feel in pretty good shape. Iv'e reached the target weight the transplant consultant set me and my breathing is as good as its been in a long time so everything that can be done has been done.

Bring it on I say

Thanks hufferpuffer for your support.

Oh Tony. A million good lucks. Can one of the family let us know what's happening and give us progress reports if you go in?

Hi Knitter can you knit me some good luck as I may be in need of it later.

Morning Tony. I am married to a Sharon and by coincidence she is also a transplant co-ordinator. She transplants my pension to her bank account. lol

I hope the antibody check works out ok and I am keeping everything crossed for you.


Thanks Bobby, My wife is also Sharon and I know what you mean about any money that come's into the house. I get DLA and ESA but I never see any of it.

Maybe today will be the start of a new life and me making a return to work.


I felt so excited for you when I read your post. Fingers crossed and good luck x

Thanks SusieQs for your kind support

Wow - i wish you so much luck. I have been absent from the site for a while with a little bit of burying my head. I have just read your blog about your amazing bike ride and I found it truly inspirational. Time to get my head out of the sand and start getting my body into shape. Fingers crossed for you today and hope the antibodies match. X

Not sure I'm right about the antibody things-anyway hope the lungs are a match is what I meant to say!

Oh a pan full of bacon and can't eat it but it's worth the sacrifice, hope all goes well we will be thinking of you, all the best
