#TeamMissy Transplant Warriors UPDATE!!!
Another GREAT one that had me bawling my eyes out in sheer happiness and gratitude!!!
Woohooee!!!! Melissa Smith has been on 4 liters of O2 since they took her off the ventilator. For those who don't know, she had been on 15 liters of O2 at home with oxygen saturation in the 80s and low 90s before this Transplant. And that was with her sitting still and not moving.
They have removed the cannula ( the nasal oxygen tubes ) and her oxygen levels ON HER OWN is at 100%!!!!!!!!!
You guys, it has been at least 4 YEARS since she has had 100% oxygen saturation without needing supplemental oxygen!!!!!
Reports from Mamma Gloria Smith say:
"Many prayers of thanks to the individual who donated those beautiful lungs!!!! This is the first time in years she is only breathing oxygen that HER BODY PRODUCED. Tears of gratitude and appreciation.!"
The therapist is having her do breathing exercises and coughs to keep them nice and clear and she's doing amazing Rochelle Blankenship reports that mamma said Missy is *beaming*!!!!!
Thank you, Lord!!!
