As of 5:26 AM CysticGal is out of surgery, off the bypass, and is scheduled to arrive in the ICU shortly. 

Whoo hoo!  Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and especially to the donor family, for a faith that is hard to imagine.

@cffatboy @unknowncystic perhaps simply wearing THE MOST BADASS article of clothing we own, in honor of general @CysticGal badassery.
What color do we wear when @CysticGal gets out? I'm not wearing pink, but I have salmon.

Going to bed with prayers for @cysticgal. Her blog says double lung transplant has started

  1. CG- I am posting on here for some weird reason. It is Wednesday a.m. and you must be in ICU. i am thinking about you every single second and I love you. xxxooo

  2. Thanks for the update! Just started to follow the progress and sending loads of prayers your way.

    My husband is almost 6 years post CF double lung transplant and we are truly blessed. He waited 3.5 years and had 5 dry runs before his miracle (perfect) hand-me-down lungs. It was a true blessing to see him take his first deep breath!

    Feel free to follow our transplant blog and contact me if I can be of any assistance:

  3. I couldn't wait to read updates when I woke this morning. Congrats Beth! In the past 3 months, Jess, Jim, Piper and you have received an awesome gift. Heres to a smooth recovery!!
