A little secret news...

I wasn't sure if I was going to write about this, because it's not that big of a deal, but I've only told one person so far! But I almost got a call for lungs already.  Crazy I know.  The average wait time is 6 months - 9 months, but last week the two people ahead of me that are my same size and blood type, well one was "not available" and one turned down the lungs, so that left little me! But it was an offer for a single lung only, and well I didn't even know I could get just a single lung (the first time I could only get double, cystic fibrosis only gets double lung transplants) but I guess in the case of chronic rejection you can get a single, but anyway, my doctor knew I wouldn't accept a single so they didn't call me.  But I still find it amazing after like 2 weeks on the transplant last my name even came up! I'd have to be really really sick to take an offer for just one lung (and I mean at that point I would be high on the list I would think - the sicker you are the higher you are - so....) but yeah! Exciting and scary! In other news I think my abscess is actually getting smaller today, and the pain is minimal so I think the antibiotics are finally working! Hooray!

I hope you are all having fun in the snow :)
