Thank you so much guys. They said the operation will be around midnight and they won't know if the lungs are viable until right up to that point, so it's just waiting now.

This sounds fantastic!  Please, Please, Please keep us updated.  I will be saying prayers for a successful transplant.  Do you have any idea of how long you will be in the hospital?

ManCityFan
Do you have any idea of how long you will be in the hospital?

A few days in the ICU, a week or to in a room ans 3 or 4 appointments a week for a month or so. Then it drops to twice a week and so on. They may not let me go back to Boise for maybe a year. At least until they are sure I won't have any problems that can't be handled in Boise.

Hi Steve,

Bad news for the donor family, but they will be lifted by the fact that their loved one's passing will give a gift to others.

Looking forward to a positive match and a great outcome. Thinking of you and yours.
