For all my responses to other members here, this is my first "original" post. I thought I'd let you good people know that today, I'm going into hospital in preparation for endo-bronchial valve implants tomorrow. Eeek!!
Tomorrow will be the end of a long road; it's taken two years to get me to the point where I've been infection- and medication-free for a month. I've had all the pre-op assessments (they took about 4 hours, all told) and it's "all systems go". I expect to be in hospital and then in respite care for a week or so. I'll report back later...
