If all goes well, Tricia will be discharged tomorrow (Saturday). She has been walking a mile consistently and has all but the last two small chest tubes pulled. She is still in some pain and is still very week, but we're excited about having her "home" with us after a little over a month in the hospital. She'll be back to The Center For Living on Monday to begin her five weeks of physical therapy/rehab, and depending on setbacks and another possible procedure the team may demand, we could be home as early as mid-July.
We are so thankful to God for Tricia's donor and the team at Duke. These lungs seem to be an absolute perfect match for Tricia, and we know that without the amazing surgeons, doctors, nurses and other staff, she would have never made it this far. Tricia still needs prayer, as she's certainly not anywhere near "healthy" as we'd like her to be, but we are excited about how well she is doing and are so thankful for your support.
