Thank you all for your kind thoughts & shared experiences. My husband has been the sole supporter these last few years- I'm currently have 42% of my lungs that are working. Once I get on the list, get the call, we need to relocate for 3-6 months after surgery... we just moved to a smaller place in Sept. 2016, so it would be easier to take care of... we will have to find a way to move near the hospital, & try to rent out our current home. No children or family here- but we have a 15 year old cat. I know that the new lungs will make my life better- We are being positive about it. - I have had 32 wonderful years with my sweet man. I am so blessed for that time together. He's by best friend.
