The passionate and dedicated folks at PatientsLikeMe have followed my journey almost as closely as I have. Recently, they asked me to share my transplant experiences from getting “the call” to rehab and recovery.
If you haven’t checked out PLM yet, I strongly recommend you do, starting with this interview!
It’s crazy to think how fast things can happen. The last time we talked with Lori, she was telling us about life on the lung transplant list and playing what she called “the waiting waltz.” And now – everything has changed. Just two weeks after we posted her third interview on the PatientsLikeMe blog in mid April, Lori got the call – they had a set of lungs for her. We caught up with Lori one more time, and fifteen weeks post transplant she’s nothing but smiles. Check out what she had to share and don’t forget to follow Lori on her own blog called Reality Gasps. (Thank you Lori for being so open about your experiences with IPF!) Read the full interview
