Update on Modelcrazy - GREAT NEWS!
Posted by Mopar Madness on Saturday, March 10, 2018 5:07 PM

Hello friends. As some of you already know, Steve has been waiting patiently for a new set of donor lungs. After a few misfires, it looks like he may have acquired a set!!  He contacted me on Friday morning around 4:30 AM to let me know he was called into the hospital because they may have found a donor set! He told me he felt good about this one and he would contact me if nothing came from it.  So, it’s been more than 24 hours and I haven’t heard from him!!  He told me once he had the surgery he would be in recovery for a few weeks so we might not hear from him for a while. Steve is genuinely a salt of the earth person and I am glad to call him my friend! Please keep him and his wife in your thoughts and prayers for a quick and peaceful recovery! I will update you as soon as I hear something.

On another site. Someone mentioned that Steve had the surgery has new lungs and is breathing on his own. I do not have any more details. But it looks good so far

Hello friends.  So, I had a visit with Steve this morning and let me tell you, he looks fantastic!  He'll be released mid to late next week.  The surgery, which normally takes 8-9 hours, took his surgical team 5.5 hours! The lungs are an exact fit so there is no discomfort associated with the new lungs, but he does feel pain in the chest for obvious reasons. He's a bit hoarse but hes talking without any issues!  He's very grateful for all your thoughts and prayers! The story of taking the first breath is very personal and special so I'll let him tell you his experience when he's back on his PC which will be very soon!  So exciting!
