I just pray for her. She is finally on a waiting list, and she is only about 44 or so. She has had it real bad for a long time. She is very well known in my community and I've known her most of my life. I will update if I have any updates on her. I hope it isn't too long that she has to wait.

Thanks everyone for the concern. I don't know any details. It could be a lng time before I hear an update. I'm not really friends with her, I just know her and remember when she used to come to my church many years ago. I think she is having both at the same time, but not sure.

Wow, a double transplant. That is incredible. Is she having it all done at the same time?

Jem needed a Triple transplamt: Heart, Lungs. Kidney. Unfortunately she also had lupis (SLE) which prevented her from receiving transplants. She was also allergic to many of the antirejection meds. (she needed them to try to control the Lupis).

Thank you Kim. Unfortunately for me she passed from this life in July 2010.
I don't know which of her medical challenges "took her" from me, but it could have been any of the life theatening challenges. I do miss her tremendously still even after more than a year and a half.

Sorry I didn't make it clear in the post above that she was no longer alive here on earth. But I believe she is alive in heaven with Jesus, and someday I will be reunited with her when Jesus calls me home.

I have had 2 patients that had both a kidney and pancreas transplant and are doing wonderful! No more insulin and the such. I pray she gets this soon. How long has she been on the transplant list? Is she registered in more than one state?
