And They're Off!
Madeline and Jim left for their extended stay in Pittsburgh on Saturday morning after tying up loose ends in Rhode Island. They spent another overnight in Harrisburg and arrived in Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon.
This means that Madeline is officially listed as "active" on the lung transplant list.
The next couple days will be filled with more meetings and tests. Madeline will be meeting with her local primary care physician and getting set up for pulmonary rehab, which they want to start immediately to strengthen her for the rigors of post surgery.

So glad to hear you got on the list. I'm hoping and praying that you don't have to wait too long. I am still not on the list at Brigham but hoping I'll be on it soon. Love the blog and I will continue to check for any updates. God bless you and Jim and your family.
