Wow, what a day! This morning I had that second round of allergy testing with Dr. Lang. And testing showed I no longer carry any sensitivities to these medications! So that means one more sign off and box checked for transplant! Yay!
We also met with Angela, my social worker for lung transplant. She coordinates a lot of stuff and really is one of the bigger obstacles to get over because any red flags from her could put my entire transplant in jeopardy. All of my caregivers were required to attend this meeting so mom, Eli and I drove over to meet with her in person and Ginnie and Rochelle signed in via Zoom. I set them up to call in together from my house because they are doing me two favors at once and also waiting for our new stove to be delivered (we have been without a stove for months now and the stove cooktop finally went out as well so this was a must have at this point). We went over my history (again - I am pretty sure this is a requirement for every single person I meet), she talked about things that might be obstacles for me for transplant. Fortunately for me, she did not find a single red flag and is ready to advocate for me to be listed for a double lung and liver transplant! She also said that she would like to see me listed sooner rather than later and that my appointment with the psychiatrist at the end of the month won't hold me up from getting on the list. AND - they are reviewing my case tomorrow! She said she sees no reason for me to not be approved and I should know something before the end of the day tomorrow. Talk about waiting for the call of a lifetime! I have worked so hard and waited so long to get listed, this will really be life changing. So I am looking for all of the good juju vibes, prayers, well-wishes, whatever you've got, send them my way and out into the universe! I truly believe this is my time. My faith has really carried me through and by God's Grace I will be listed in the very near future!
