Lung Tansplant

We have a friend who is a member here.
They have asked me to not use there name in this post. I'll respect that.

Their daughter is in desperate need of a lung transplant. they've been hopeful a time for more, but it hasn't come thru yet.

Here is part of a PM from that member who is a very dear friend of ours.
______________________________ ______________


it's a little tough right now: actually, maybe more than that. Our daughter has had a major setback. She got pneumonia in the lower lobe of her right lung and the middle lobe of the same lung filled up to the point of collapse. She only had 20% lung function before this latest episode. Anyway, she checked herself into emergency, which resulted in a collaboration of efforts by the CF doctors here at Spectrum and her primary transplant physician in Ann Arbor. Subsequently, she was put in an induced coma. They ventilated and suctioned her lungs out and she was then air lifted from the GR ICU to the ICU in Ann Arbor the other night. The secretions, in her lungs, were described as the consistency of peanut butter. As of now, we are in a holding position to see what her condition will become short term. There is a possibility she will get off the vent, but it appears more likely they will be give her tracheotomy and try to get her mobile and build strength and hopefully get lungs. Several of the doctors say she is "one tough cookie" and a “rule breaker”. We have seen miracles with this little lady before and we are in need of another. On a bright note, she did come to a semi-conscience condition yesterday and responded to some of our badgering. Any prayers would be appreciated.

I am so very sorry to hear of her worsening condition. I am sending many prayers her way, also for all of you, her family. She IS one tough cookie, she has fought so hard and long now. I also pray that God gives all of you strength and wisdom to help her in this battle.

Love,
Debbie

Harold and I send heart felt prayers for all of you. Yes, she is "one tough cookie" to hold on like she has. I will send up a special prayer daily for a real miracle to come . You are a wonderful family and I wish you all only the best. Please keep us informed as much as you can. We all care so much.
