I was now leaving North Carolina back to Michigan after being away for 6 months. Now, with my new lungs, I could finally breathe the fresh air that surrounded the Great Lakes. Ahhhhh, it was so great to be alive. I now love every moment...cleaning the dishes, packing the kid's lunches, tucking the kids into bed, emptying the trash. Life is good. I do have to go back for a check-up about every three months to make sure my new lungs are doing well and free of rejection. My life was saved. I have a second chance to make it as wonderful and amazing as possible. I just have to take my medications, avoid being around crowds and people who are sick and go for check ups every three months. I do take my medications, lot of them. I avoid crowds and people who are sick. I go for check ups back to North Carolina every three months. The only way I am able to do the latter is because of this amazing organization called Miracle Flights for Kids. There is no way I could ever afford to be able to make these required appointments if it weren't for Miracle Flights. This wonderful organization has allowed me to go there to get the best care for these amazing lungs that keep me alive. I owe it to my donor to make sure I do everything possible to make sure my new lungs stay healthy. Thanks to Miracle Flights, I am doing just that.
