What Day?? Lungevity Walk Day

Getting ready to walk for those folk dealing with LC that can't.  I didn't know if I would be able to do it this year.  I started the week with two pulled hamstrings due to helping with a history fair poster.  It is Saturday my Hamstrings feel better so here we go, ready for a good walk.

Life is Good

Hello I haven't posted anything in a long time or a long time for bloggers that is.  I have not been to the spa in almost 2 years which is great.  My health is stable, so I haven't had much to talk about, like I said "Life is Good".

Medical marijuana

I have never used marijuana or any other illegal drug, or really consumed alcohol for that matter but I can now say I have had my unhealthy lungs filled with that foul smoke.  It is not just me that had deal with marijuana but my family as well and yes even the dog got high.  We are victims of the smoke party our neighbors upstairs are having.  It is my opinion that those athletes from that university in Fort Worth aren't so squeaky clean as their name might have you to believe.  I called the Local Police so hopefully my new lungs won't be polluted anymore.  It is a shame that I had to fight to get new lungs now I have to fight to keep them clean while in my own home.  I want to breathe free.....

LUNGevity name stolen by a CF patient

I am really frustrated and deeply disappointed that one of the organizations geared to helping lung cancer patients is having to deal with someone stealing their name.  Lung cancer patients don't have many organizations that fight the good fight for them.  It really cuts to the core that a local CF patient is trying to use the LUNGevity name to raise money for her personal fundraising effort for an up coming CF event in North Texas.  The sad thing is she sees no harm in using a name that people associated with lung cancer to now be tied to CF.  I am not bashing CF, but there is next to no funding for lung cancer.... heck when I go to several local stores I am often asked at checkout if I want to donate to CF.  I wish industry thought enough of lung cancer to take up a collection towards a cure when people checked out.  It is stealing to use another organizations name the way this person intends to.

6 year Annual Post Transplant evaluation

6 year Annual Post Transplant evaluation took place over a week ago.  The evaluation went well.  Most lung test results were better than expected since there really isn't much data on lung transplant patients with BAC as their pre-condition.  I am still waiting to see if I set a new 6 minute walk record for Baylor (I moved from UTSW) I will have to keep you posted.
