To all my dear "Family" here on H.U.
Thank you for all your messages of support, prayers, and for "Just being there".
We have had a rocky road for the past 2 + years, and now we can look forward to happier times.
I can never thank you all enough for your support , especially during the past two weeks.
To those of you who are religious and those who want to believe, the following will confirm that HE not only is but can, and wants to help us. We just need to have faith and believe in HIM.
Three months ago, when things were looking very grim for us, I went outdoors and asked GOD what will happen. Will Susan get her new lungs.
That same night at 1.30 AM I awoke, sat bolt upright in bed and received the answer, not in word, nor a dream, but coming from within. "Susan will get her new lungs and it will take 7 hours". I told Susan next morning about this and since that day I have not had any concerns about the future.
Well the surgery took 5 1/4 hours but due to complications post op the surgeon kept my wife in theatre for another 1 3/4 hours = 7 hours.
Susan will possibly be coming home tomorrow, albeit with a few health problems, some ,which we need to alter our life style to accommodate.
I cannot comprehend how my darling wife has stood up to all the challenges both with the surgery and the problems we have endured post Op. Susan has shown more courage, tenacity and a will power akin to that of the British Bulldog.Never backing down and meeting each challenge with an "I will beat this" attitude.
The next 12 weeks will see us re visiting the Alfred every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for check ups, blood testing and rehab exercises.
Please keep Susan in your prayers as her recovery will take up to 12 months.
We are more than happy to share our experience with any of you who may benefit from what we have learned.
We are just a keyboard away
Thank you all and may GOD bless us......... Sufferers and carers
