Caspiana...A new lung


Yesterday I received an email from Caspiana advising that she had received "That Call" from the hospital, telling her to come in as they had a lung for her.

I have not heard from Cas since so I can only assume that she did have a lung transplant yesterday.

If you are of a mind please keep Cas in your prayers during this testing time as she starts recovery.

For those who did not know, this was a battle being fought very courageously for the past several years.

In Japan you are only offered one lung.

I was thinking of our Caspiana last night at 10pm, as BSA-3 had also given us the terrific news and that was the time she,fingers crossed,would have started her new journey. (I think it was another member and good friend,who gave us the approx time).

I'm so very hopeful for Cas and can't wait to hear how things are going for her.

Thank you for your message.

Joining everyone else in praying&thoughts!Cas is such an inspiration!!

Well wishes and prayers for Cas. 🐞

Good luck caspiana i am thinking off you all the best xxxxxxx

We all know and love Cas and are well aware of her struggles and am so very happy to hear she finally got the call for the transplant and pray all goes well. Of course we may never know the extent of her struggles as she was never a complainer.

That is fantastic news. I hope all goes well for her.

Thinking of her and wishing her a speedy recovery xx

Thanks for the news and I wish her a speedy and successful recovery from her transplant operation. We are all thinking of her at this time. xx

Prayer for Cas


Japanese healthcare is magnificent.

Someone (with COPD) told me a transplant may last about ten years.

Couldn't it be a precaution that one at a time?

Less invasive for the lady to cope with?

They are extremely precise.

My thoughts and prayers, too.

Sadly, in Japan,due to a shortage of donors, you are only offered one lung.

I have met ladies who are now 29 years and 22 years post transplant and still going strong.

I am hoping that in time Cas will be on here to tell us all about her experience, but it will take time. She will remain in hospital for at least 12 weeks undergoing rehab and close monitoring by the medical team.

I've just got round to reading all these wonderful messages. 😃😁😊 Thank you for posting. 🌷

I must add however that Japan does do double lung transplants but only when completely necessary. I got one lung because my disease allowed for it. In the case of a CF patient that wouldn't be so.

Thank you again everyone. xx ❤🙋

Hello Cas. My heart sings every time I see a post from you. I hope you feel a bit better and things get a little easier every day. 💐

Thank you Huff. ❤😘😃 I want to keep in touch more but with one thing and another I seem to be swamped everyday. But when I get home I will do better. I hope you are well and your lovely sheep. xx😉😄😊

I’m not surprised you’re swamped with stuff, in fact it amazes me you find the time and energy to talk with us. I can barely imagine what’s involved in rehabilitation from such major surgery, my only experience being mine from lesser things, and my dad’s from open heart surgery. But eagerly awaiting the day you’re home and back to sharing your tales of Chom and photos of your village as it grows.

Hello🌺Have you perhaps heard about Cas? Thank you❤❤

Morning Hun, No News received yet, I Know this is a Huge Op, Recovery isn't normally so quick, maybe a few more Days we will Hear some News. XXXX

Aww best o luck “ keep my fingers crossed ❤️ x

Sending love and prayers to dear Cas xxx

I’ve not been on here for a while. I must have known!!!

Sending my love and healing prayers xxxxxxxx
