Heard from the scheduler at UCLA's transplant center today (1/10/17)!
I'll be going down the last week of February / first week of March for several tests and interviews. The transplant team (at least 8-9 people) meets weekly to discuss transplant candidates and prioritize their list placement.
So, shortly after my visit I will know whether I need to relocate to Los Angeles (temporarily), or whether they want me to wait in Oregon. Either way, we should know in a few weeks!
Once I get listed, then it becomes a waiting game until donor lungs (that are a match for me) become available. Could be weeks, could be months. We're praying for sooner!
Thanks to all for the prayers, encouragement and financial support!
The RedBasket campaign (fundraising) ends February 12th.
Please check it out if you haven't already...we're already at 71% of the target!
