First I would like to thank everyone for thier very kind words, thoughts and prayers before my lung transplant assessment (step 1) on Tuesday. It make's such a difference to know there are others out there who care and are thinking of you. After a x-ray, spirometry,bloods,and a record breaking 6 minute walk of '408 metres off oxygen' the consultant told me that I am ill enough and fit enough for a transplant. He and his team have forwarded me to the next step which is a 4 day stay in hospital while they check the rest of my body is in good order. This is starting on the 25th of this month, so not too long to wait. After this then its down to them on whether I get on the list or not. Im still keeping calm but I can feel the pressure is building. 'Dont Panic Captain Manwaring' Once again, you good people on this BLF site THANKS FOR YOUR KINDNESS!!
